Dear Expert,

I am having one Win 2000 Server as Domain Controller and one Win 2000 Server as

Fileserver. I am using Win 2000 Professional as workstations.

My problem is...

When I logon in Local account (e.g. Administrator) on some workstation and access the

fileserver, it asks for 'Connect as....' and 'password.....", i supply the userid and password

of some Active Directory user  but it does not accpets it.  But if i supply the userid and

password of some Local User of the Fileserver, it works.

I want that it should also accept the userid and password of the Active Directory users of

domain  in order to open the shared folder on the Fileserver which the user has

permissions. Please solve my problem.
