using internet explorer tools-map network drive.

the error msg invalid user name and password but it can login to domain and
can connect to other member server share drive but not the dc share drive

The dc server is running on windows 2000 DC activey directory.

Hello DD,

First check that DNS is only pointing to your internal domain DNS server
on nall servers and clients.

Re: can't map network drive

Yes, both client & server point to internal DNS, only can not map to one of
the dc share drive but map to others member server or dc , no problem.

Not sure anything to do with the IIS lock and URL SCAN,

Re: can't map network drive

Have you tried to see if you can browse to the share you're trying to map
to?
Check the "effective permissions" on the folder, for the user trying to map
to it.
Is there anything relevant to this in the Event logs, after you've attempted
to map to the share?

Re: can't map network drive

Can browse the computer but can't see the share folder.
i login to that pc using administrator id and that folder granted everyone
access.

Event log not showing anything when try to map from the pc.

Re: can't map network drive

Are these the facts?

- the share is on a Windows 2000 DC

- the PC that is trying to connect to the share on the DC is Windows 2000

- from the PC, you can browse the DC by entering \\DCname

- you see other shares on the DC, and can map to those, but you can't see OR
map to one particular share


Can other PC's map to this particular share on the DC?
Can they even browse to it?
From the DC, in Computer Managment, does the shared folder show up under
Shared Folders/Shares?



==================================
some windows 2000 pc can't map to network drive using net use \\xxx\xxx
or
using internet explorer tools-map network drive.

the error msg invalid user name and password but it can login to domain and
can connect to other member server share drive but not the dc share drive

The dc server is running on windows 2000 DC activey directory.
one differen thing is DC have installed IIS lock down where other server

Re: can't map network drive

I hear what your concern is; that running IIS Lockdown messed up your shares
but, I don't believe running IIS lockdown does anything to shares on that
box. It only removes part of IIS that are most vulnerable.

And the key here is; you say "other" PC's can map to that share. If that is
the case, then the issue isn't with the server. It's with that one
particular PC.

You had mentioned that you login to the PC as admin, and you granted
"Everyone" access to the share. Have you checked NTFS permissions on that
share? Check the effective permissions, on the share, for the user that
can't access the share.

>> Can other PC's map to this particular share on the DC?

> *** can

Re: can't map network drive

I think is on dc server problem, that pc can mapped to other server share
drive, and the remote desktop user also can map to that DC share drive, same
error message invalide user name and password.
