I'm working in a new office environment and am set up as an AD admin on server 01 (win 2003), which is the Domain Controller. Server 02 is the fileserver and hosts the share. I can not map my workstation to the share to save my life! I can RDP to the file server fine, authenticate with my admin logon and perform anything I want while in but I simply cannot get to the share from my XP Pro workstation. I believe I have the profile settings correct and have joined my worksation to the domain, unjoined it, joined a local workgroup, unjoined....nothing. I also have tried using the built in admin username/pass, to no avail.

Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.

Do you have any internet security suites / 3rd party firewalls installed?

1. Make sure SERVER2 is a member of the domain.
2. Make sure your workstation is a member of the domain
3. Make sure you are logged in as a user that is a member of the DOMAIN ADMINS group.
4. Check the SHARE on server 2 and make sure the SHARE permissions are set to allow R/W access for DOMAIN ADMINS or even EVERYONE.
5. Check the NTFS security permissions on the shared folder and make sure domain admins has r/w rights.

Thanks guys...got it. Step 4 above seemed to do it... actually added my logon as a user and it took, even though I was already a domain admin.
