Issue seeing shared drive when logging into test client. Unable to map drive for user.
Posted on 2007-10-18
Hello, my environment includes an early novell (original box) server, nt 4 server and a W2K3 server(just added) and XP Pro clients. The network was originally Novell and the users, computers and printers where set up in Novell. The NT box was added and the users and computers added to NT. When the users log on a script runs that gives them access to the Novell shares and joins them to the xxxxxx NT domain. The Novell network is xxx and can be accessed by all users once logged in. The drives are all mapped. I added the W2K3 box to run a test environment. Right now the NT domain xxxxxx can see the Novell server xxx and the W2K3 server is part of a workgroup and can be seen in Network places. Other computers in the network are part of the workgroup as well. I took an old pc that used to be part of the domain and could access the Novell and NT boxes and want to use it to test the software on the W2K3 box. My issues is this, if I log onto the test client as admin I can map the drive to the W2K3 box. If I log onto the test pc as a user on the network I cannot. The drive is shared that I want to map to and can see it as admin but not user. I am not sure how to run logon scripts or where to look for the one that runs now.I want the users to start using the test software to prepare for a migration.
