NT4 workstations get access is denied when trying to browse a domain controller
Posted on 2006-06-22
When logged into a Windows NT4 sp6 workstation (as Administrator) and using Network Neighborhood to browse the network, I am unable to browse the domain controllers (all 3 of them). The domain controllers are Windows2000. On one of the domain controllers there are printer shares that the XP and 2000 computers can see. The only ones having issues seeing the printer shares are the NT4 boxes.
This is what I have seen.
The NT4 boxes can browse all non domain controller boxes at my location. The reason I say my location is because there are some domain controllers that are located in the UK and I am able to browse thoes servers on the same NT4 box. I think it has to be a security setting that was changed unknowingly. I just find it strange it would effect all the controllers here. The other guy here thinks it has to do with me adding back in the Default group policies for domain and domain controllers. If that was the case I would think I would have the same issue browsing the UK domain servers as I do here, but I dont want to rule that out as I had to create them from scratch as someone went into the sysvol and deleted them from there and I might have missed a setting or enabled a setting that shouldnt have been done. But like I said, if it was a group policy that stopped all NT4 boxes from browsing the domain controllers, it would have happened to the UK servers also.
I also did find something on here that sounds like the same issue as mine, but it didnt work out plus the topic ended with something about SMB signing and that isnt the answer for me.
