Cannot access windows 2003 share (cross domains)
Posted on 2011-02-17
I'm having issues accessing a share on a windows 2003 server from my WinXP desktop. The server share is \\server1.green.local\dir & the desktop I'm logged into is in a workgroup, but I have been given an account REM\user10 which to access this share. The user10 account resides in Rem.com domain. When I log into green.local domain "AD Domain & Trusts" I can see that the trust with Rem.com is external non transitive.
On the \\server1.green.local\dir the Univeral security group Rem\share_read has read access (NTFS & Share) & when I run an effective permissions on this share against my REM\user10 it appears to have the appropriate rights. However whenever I try to do this I get the dialogu box stating: "Enter Network Password" "Incorrect password or unknown username for:" although I know the username & password are correct.
I then added a test account (Rem\test10) to REM\share_read security group & when I try to map a drive to the \\server1.green.local\dir share this works I can then explore the folders.
I have checked the security on the share - there is no denies applicable to REM\user10 account.
I have also cleared the password list on the XP desktop, but no improvement.
I have also explicitally given Full Access (NTFS & Share) to REM\user10 on the \\server1.green.local\dir share, but again no joy.
Does any have any ideas on what I can do here?
