Dear Sir or Madam,
I have a small LAN.
The PDC/GC is win 2003SBS on Dell Precision 220, running SQL 2000 Enterprise.
Another DC Compaq WIN 2000 SP4 server, running SQL 2000 enterprise.
Four Client PCs with Win 2000 Pro SP4, and a 5th client PC with XP SP1.
The clients (win 2000) can see the net, can be seen and accessed by all needing users, due to shares.
No restricting policies.
NetGear Router DHCP not running. All PCs on fixed 192.168.0.... addresses.
The XP client can see everybody and has access everywhere.
However, the other PCs (win 2000) cannot access the XP PC.
The message I get, on my PC (win 2000pro) is:
Logon failure user account restriction.
The two servers CAN interogate the XP client without problem. This is after I got the XP to re-join the LAN.
Both A.D.s, on the servers, seem OK and both DNS servers seem OK.
Should I have only one DNS server, only on Win 2003SBS?
I set up Hosts file on every PC. It does not help.
What am I doing wrong? Or what have I forgotten to do?
