Hello,
I am running server 2008 terminial services.  I have AD installed, but I am using a workgroup on the network.  I am unable to browse the network using the Admin logon.  I can access shares using \\ipaddress, but not \\computername.  It works fine if I log on under another user, except for one computer on the nework.  I get the following error message: access is denied, you do not have permissions to use this network resource.  Any ideas on how to fix?

you are probably logging on as the local administrator & not domain administrator.

You will need to either add a share on remote computers to access them or use a domain account

A couple of things come to mind:
1.  Are you using blank passwords.  XP-2008 do not allow network access w/ blank passwords
2.  Is netbois enabled?  Computername=netbios in a workgroup.  
3.  DNS is another area that may be an issue.  Are your workgroup computers pointing to AD DNS?
4.  Is your Admin user the admin for workgroup or AD?  If AD, then you need to grant permissions to share.  Workgroup uses the local SAM database, does not recognize AD admin.

If you can provide some more info on config (DNS, Netbios) that would be great.

I was able to take care of this.  I went to control panel>user accounts>manage network passwords and deleted the saved passwords.  Then I reconnected to all the network machines and now it works perfectly.
