asked on

Windows Xp prof acting outside of domain

Hi All,

I would like to ask what do you think how would a Windows Xp prof machine act (after I logged it to the domain) if I would move it permanently outside of the domain environment to a site where there is no domain controller at all?
I need to move this computer because as a workgroup computer it had a very bad group policy and I could not reach a specific folder share!

What do you think, I the computer going to be working fine outside of the domian?

So, I have tried to use it as a workgroup computer but I couldn't reach the folder share, no metter what premission I gave to that folder (on C:\ drive)
I have tried the same thing using the workgroup's highest user level (Administrator) to give the premission and so on...
From the server side it sees the folder share and everything it should, I was able to open the shared folder from the server side (\\PC\shared folder).
The program I need to use on this specific computer is the Remote Desktop Connection, which is starting a warehouse management software. This software needs to reach the local desktop shared folder. That is what is NOT working with workgroup group policy ONLY works with domain policy (don't know yet why).
Even though that specific server where I need to connect via Remote desktop is not in the domain, it is only a workgroup machine.

Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
Did you check accessing the system through IP address over workgroup
Yepp, it is able to access it with IP address and also with UNC path.
