Hi ppl,

How do I go about giving a workgroup user access to file shares on the domain?

The servers are setup so that OU's and users get access to certain files and folder. So adding everyone to the share permissions on the folder lets in the workroup user but then it also lets other domain users in that I dont want accessing it.


Thanks

Why do you have a workgroup user?  Why aren't they on the domain?  This is complicating your management.

That said, create a user on the domain with the SAME user name and password on it as the user has on the workgroup machine

Then add that user to a group with rights to the folder.  That should work, so long as your domain user account password doesn't expire and the user doesn't change the local user account password.

Ok cool.

I work at a school so we have teachers who use their laptops at work and at home. Some of them have file sharing and media sharing set up at home so they need to keep their workgroup settings.
