It appears each of these operating systems attempts to use the credentials you have entered to login to Windows.
interesting. what did you do to observe this behavior? i'd like to look at whatever "log" you looked at?
when each computer is logged in under the administrative account, do they all share the same password and account name or are they all different or some overlapping?
this is a "workgroup lan". each computer is locally logged on to by an account that is an administrator, but the account does not have a password.
- 2 accounts
- both admins
- acct 1 = myAccount (no password)
- acct 2 = adminAcct (passworded)
- im always logged into Comp A as acct 1 LOCALLY
- acct 2 is never used to logon LOCALLY
- whenever i need to reach comp A from comp B, C, D, etc, i use acct 2 (because i have to use a passworded account based on local security policy)
every other computer is set up like comp A. the locally logged on user is the same. but of course, it never has a password.
Also, are these logins centrally managed (Active Directory, LDAP, etc?)
In my view, you seem to be making a simple situation harder than it needs to be
it's a million times faster for me to access a CIFS share through run than to map it each time. i don't like persistent mappings. in my experience, when a workstation isn't reachabl
e, the computer with the persistent mapping experiences delays. your opinion is noted, but my way saves me all kinds of milis when it works. and it worked under XP without any issues.
again, as you respond, keep in mind that my XP computer gets the connect to dialog immediatly and it doesn't care what the destination OS is. if you can, test using XP as well.
by the way, was it really necessary to quote my entire post Dari? All you did was make it so that i had to scroll further to see your ... input.
Have you tried doing run, as, run as admin?
what kind of nonsense is this?
