Desktop's permissions to access a particular VM directly.

Hi experts,


My basic setup is a server using two VMs one which takes care of the AD, DNS, DHCP and DC along with the databases and data. The other VM is an RDS server. Once a user has connected to the RDS server, they have access to certain files on RDS and Ess (the name of the other VM.


From the client's desktop, without using RDP, half the users can access riverviewESS directly and half cannot. On those who can, a window opens allowing the credentials to be entered. The other half simply get a message that it is not accessible due to permissions and to contact the administrator.


My question is why can some clients access it when the proper credentials are added and the others cannot.


Thank you.

Are all clients accessing the share on the domain hosted by the ADDS DC?

The simplest thing to do would be to join the clients to the domain.

Otherwise, open File Explorer, open the UNC path, Credential, then once in right click on the root folder and MAP Network Drive and set a drive letter. Make sure to save the credentials.
