Terminal Services on domain - send different credentials to Samba server

This is similar to a question I asked a while back but never got an answer to.

I have TS running on Server 2008. We have a separate Server 2000 DC. Users log into TS using a domain username that gets authenticated by the DC.

I have a new Linux server (SuSE 11.2) running on the network and I've set up some local user shares with Samba. Everything is working fine from my regular workstaions. For a few reasons I don't want to set it up to do domain authentication, so I want to be able to enter local credentials from a TS session to log into the new shares.

However, when I'm logged into a TS session and try to connect to the server, I get a "you do not have permission" error. I can only assume it's sending the domain user credentials, since it doesn't give me the option of offering other credentials to log into the share.

How can I log into this share using local credentials, not the default domain user's?

thanks

you can write a map drive script look like this

net use s: \\computername\sharename /user:<localusername>

this will prompt you for password



net use s: \\computername\sharename <password> /user:<localusername>
this should automatically map the drive

This seems to be the right solution, but I get:
System error 64 has occurred.
The specified network name is no longer available.

I can ping the server by network name. I have the name registered in DNS.
I can browse to it from any other machine by name.
The net use command works from this machine for a different user share.

Any ideas?

I just had to reboot my Terminal Server to get it to connect again. Thanks a lot, Microsoft...
