Network shares only accessible to members of the local admin group

    I recently upgraded a server from Windows 2000 Advanced Server to Windows
    2003 Enterprise Edition. I think the upgrade did something to the network
    shares on the server because after the upgrade only members of the local
    administrators group can access the share. I did not change any of the
    permissions of the shares. after the upgrade. I looked at the sharing
    permissions and the NTFS permissions for the netwokr shares and they do not
    appear to have changed.

    When a user, who is not a member of local administrators group, tries to map
    a drive to a network share on the server from a Windows XP professional
    computer, he is asked for a user name and password. He is asked for a user
    name and password until 1) he cancels the mapping or 2) clicks on connect
    using a different user name and the user name that he enters is a member of
    the local administrators group.
    How can I make the network shares accessible again for normal users?
