window 2008 cannot map a drive to window 2003

Hi, I recently built a window 2008 server for my network.  It is a workgroup, not a domain.
I tried to connect to a shared drive on my 2003 server as an administrator.  It keeps prompting "specified network password is incorrect".  For my other 2003 servers, they have no problem to map each other as long as they have the same local adminstrator password.  I don't understand why it will not work for 2008.  I even disable the UAC in 2008 already.  For your information,  the 2003 servers have no problem to map to 2008.

Look for the Credential Manager and see if you have any passwords store in the VAULT. If yes  then go ahead and delete it..
Also tell me the correct value for RestrictAnonymous registry key under both the machines from Windows 2003 and Windows 2008.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa

Good Luck..!!

Thank you for your reply.  For this registry value,  both machines are set to 0 at this moment and I already deleted all the passwords in the vault of credential manager.

If You are in workgroup, Are You use this "destination_computer_name\administrator"
In workgroup You don´t have central user managment, so in Windows 2008 you must specify computer, where is user account stored, if you don´t specify, it use local machine accounts

Problem should be the UAC. Turn off UAC , then you should be able to access your shares from Windows 2003 server to Windows 2008.

As I mention, UAC is already turned off.

I tried to use destination_computer_name in front of the username but it has the same problem.  What I notice is the computer name is always used as domain where I type the username and password.  Should it show workgroup instead of domain?

No, it doesn´t show workgroup instead of domain, because if will have workgroup some central user managment, it will be domain : )
Do you have some records in security log (both computers)?

Found the answer but it is weird.  I took your advice and go into the security log for both machines.  On the 2008 machine, it says I try to log in as explicit credential but it does not say much.   On the 2003 machine, it did not record any log but I found out the system date is not correct on the previous log.  So I changed back the date and it works immediately.  I changed the UAC to the normal level and it still works.
