sharing a foler in a domain with a machine logged in locally.

I have a 2003 domain. I want to create a shared folder on the server and give access to someone who logs on to their machine locally( meaning not using their domain user name and password).
They do this because they have certificates loaded on that local profile.

I am un bale to find a way to add that local computer or user name to the permissions on the shared folder on the server.

They should be able to login locally and then map the drive using their network credentials.

If you are mapping the drive using Tools / Map Network Drive then the pop up box that you put in the information in also has a link about 3/4 way down that says "connect using a different username"

ok tried that, and it tells me unable to do it because of an RPC error.

What is the RPC error code?
0
 
raffie613Author Commented:
Windows cannot process the object "user name" because of the following error:
The specified domain does not exist or could not be contacted.

That is one error.
the other is  RPC server cannot be found

The other is
you cannot connect to the server using more than one user name. disconnect all connections and reconnect.

So let me understand a little better

1. user is able to log into domain from this computer and everything works except the certs?
2. user is able to log into computer locally and certs work but no access to domain resources?

Why not export the certs from the local account profile and import them to the domain account profile? This will allow either account to be logged in and use the certs.

When putting in the credentials for mapping the drive as a local user you need to put in the domain as well so it would be:   <domain>\<domain user>

its strange because I can access other shared folders on the server but this particular folder is really locked down to only two users.

Does their domain account have rights?
0
 
raffie613Author Commented:
yes of course.

pony10usCommented:
I am at a loss then.  If they can access the folder when logged in as a domain user and not when they try to map it using domain credentials doesn't make much sense.  Have you tried logging in as a local user on another machine and trying to map the drive as stated? Perhaps it is related to the machine?

raffie613Author Commented:
the error i get is:
the network folder specified is currently mapped using a different user name and password.
to connect using a different user name and password, first disconnect any existing mappings to this network share.

then I hit ok and it goes to another error:
the mapped network drive could not be created because the following error occured:
multiple connections to a server or a shared resource by the same user , using more than one user name, are not allowed. disconnect all previous connections to the server.

I have a synched folder on the domain user name on the local machine sycnhing to a folder on the server. could this be causing the issue?

I found the answer. Just need to connecting using ip address instead of netbios name.

That makes sense now that you say it.  If you put the server in the local computer host file then you can use the name instead of the IP address.  As a local log on it does not have access to your doman DNS server so it can't resolve the name to the IP.

No objection.

This was the only solution that worked and fixed the issue.
