Local Network Share User

Last Modified: 2015-04-15
We have a workgroup server acting as a file share server.  We recently are beginning to migrate all the servers to Windows Domain,  Once I joined the file server to the company domain, the local users weren't able to reconnect to their mapped drive.  

By inheriting the GPO is the server blocking the ability to gain access to users with local credentials? I put switched the server back to workgroup and everyone is able to access the network resources again.

DC = Windows 2008 R2
File Server = Windows 2008 R2

Any ideas?
