I have SBS 2003.  I tried to access a shared folder on the server from a Vista workstation that is not part of the domain.  I log in locally to the workstation and tried to coonect to the shared forlder but get the message:" The referenced account is currently logged out and may not be logged in".  When I log into the workstation as Administrator, I can access the share with the domain administrator login.  But when I log into the workstation as the local user, I don't even get the login screen.
My local login on the workstation is "Bill" and there is a domain user with named "Bill".  Does that have something to do with it?  I have been able to login from another workstation and connect to the share as Bill-using the domian login account to login to the server in order to access the share.
Is there a way I can unlock the account?
