Moved from workgroup to Corp Domain on one machine, shares not working correctly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Had to move my work laptop to the corporate domain which of course implied a new username etc..  I added the corporate username to the userlist on WHS and put in full access on all WHS shares for that username.  I then reinstalled the WHS connector software while logged into the work laptop using that user ID.  I can see and map drives  to all the shares using the "shared folders" function under the Server Connector, I can read from 8 of the 11 shares, cannot read from three of the shares.  Of the ones that I can read, I cannot write ANY files to them.  Can somebody tell me what I am possibly overlooking?

    Is the Guest account on your server enabled?  If so, what happens if you disable it, then log off and log back back on to your client?

  • Just a couple of extra ideas
    Did you disable/delete the old user account for the pc as whs could be getting confused

    and probably worth rebooting after the changes to see if that clears the permissions confusion

  • The username for your domain, as far as Windows is concerned locally, may not be what you think it is. The most reliable way to deal with this: 
    • Start the advanced user accounts control panel applet by e.g. typing "control userpasswords2" in the Run... dialog (XP) or the search box (Vista). 
    • Click the Advanced tab.
    • Click the Manage Passwords button.
    • If your server is listed here, select it and click Remove.
    • Click Add.
    • Enter your server name, the name of a user on your server (in the format <servername>\<username>, e.g. rick_server\rick), and the user's password.
    • Confirm your way back out.
    This will cache a set of credentials locally for your server, and associate them with your domain account.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
