Windows 7: Login failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type.

21 Mar 2020   #1

Windows 7 x64
Login failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type.

I'm trying to share a folder between computers. The first computer has the file on it and I shared it with all privledges (read/write/etc..) for all users. It is a Win 7 home computer so its not a domain account.

The second computer is on the domain. I get "\\computer 1 is not accessible. You might not have the permission to use this network resource. Contact the admin of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Login failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer" when I try to access that computer in the "network" tab on the left of the "My computer" window.

I tried a few guides that told me to edit things on the local group policy on the server, but they didn't work.

Any ideas on how to fix it? I didn't set the computers up this way and adding it to the domain is the last option that I don't want to do.

Hello candy123

Are both computers Windows 7?

It looks like from the error message that you still have a permissions problem. It could be that the share permissions on the file are preventing you access, or it could be that the User Account you are logged on as, is not a member of the appropriate group.
