I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine that is not connected to the domain for security reasons, but we did setup a shared folder to be accessed by the two lead technicians on site.
All the basic stuff has been done. We are not using a blank password, file sharing with passwords has been turned on (i do not want to enable blank passwords for security purposes), it doesn't work if I use IP address. I am 1000% sure the password I am entering is accurate. I have even entered the password as both: username and as "servername\username"
I created a new local user on that machine with a new password. Same result. If I actually enter a bad username or password, I get a different error code than below. I believe it said 6d instead of 6e....
I feel like I have checked and recheck NTLM settings in GPedit over and over again. It is set to accept NTLM but also v2 if negotiated. No matter what I do
SERVER is not accessible, You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank passwords not allowed, logon hour restrictions, or a policy restriction has been enforced.
On the server where I am trying to access, the security log has this:
An account failed to log on.
Security ID: NULL SID
Account Name: -
Account Domain: -
Logon ID: 0x0
Logon Type: 3
Account For Which Logon Failed:

Account Domain: bethanyhv
Failure Reason: Unknown user name or bad password.

Caller Process ID: 0x0
Caller Process Name: -
Workstation Name: SERVERNAME
Source Network Address: 192.168.1.4

Detailed Authentication Information:
Logon Process: NtLmSsp
Authentication Package: NTLM
Transited Services: -
Package Name (NTLM only): -

This event is generated when a logon request fails. It is generated on the computer where access was attempted.
The Subject fields indicate the account on the local system which requested the logon. This is most commonly a service such as the Server service, or a local process such as Winlogon.exe or Services.exe.
The Logon Type field indicates the kind of logon that was requested. The most common types are 2 (interactive) and 3 (network).
The Process Information fields indicate which account and process on the system requested the logon.
The Network Information fields indicate where a remote logon request originated. Workstation name is not always available and may be left blank in some cases.
The authentication information fields provide detailed information about this specific logon request.
- Transited services indicate which intermediate services have participated in this logon request.
- Package name indicates which sub-protocol was used among the NTLM protocols.
- Key length indicates the length of the generated session key. This will be 0 if no session key was requested.
If someone can help identify what I should check to get permissions to browse shared resources on this machine I would be very grateful. I've been beating my head against a virtual wall for days now.
