Stop Windows from prompting for Username and Password
Posted on 2006-06-18
i am looking to find out if anyone knows of any way to stop a Windows 2003 Server running AD from prompting for Username and Password from computers that are not on the domain.
What I am trying to have happen is in order to access any network resources you must be a member of the domain. This is for a security concern where people who have access to the domain resources are using personal computers to access informaion and when they go to the file share such as \\Servername\sharename they are then prompted to enter username and password and since they are domain users they have an account to use but once that get access to the files on the personal machine I can no longer force policeys such as auto-locking if inactive or stop them from coping the data to a disc ect.
