Authenticate workgroup user through a member server
There are many workstations that are currently setup as a workgroup and it is too time consuming to join all of them to the domain of the server. The DC server is Server 2003 STD and is working great as a fileserver for the office. All of the users in the office have a domain account that matches there local user name and password of the workstation. They can access the server shares no problem.
Now we have added an additional 2003 STD server which is setup as a member server. It is required to have a share from the member server accessable to all of the users. When trying to access the member server is authenticating locally and not quering the DC for the credentials.
I have tried to changed the "allow anyonimus SID translation" option on the member server. Also I have confirmed that all of the systems are pointing to the DC for DNS. I know this is not the best way to do this but time is very important and converting the office workstations over to the domain and cloning the user account is not possible right now.
Please some one help with this. I would prefer to not open the member server fully with something like guest acecess. Best if the member server passes along the credentials to the DC.
