windows 2003 server shared folder is not accessible when login locally on xp pc...

Dear All,

wheneve im trying to access while login locally on xp pc and trying to access windows 2003 domain shared folder , account lockout message is coming.
( but if im trying to access the same folder after login on domain on xp pc, no error message coming).
At least if im trying to access windows 2003 shared folder , it should ask me user name and password screen but till now im facing account lock out message.

Thanks n regards,

This will happen if the local account is the same as the domain account (name).

Try mapping the share using the domain account and checking the box for Reconnect at logon.
