Problem with AD and win98 shares

Discussion in 'Active Directory' started by Costas Karatzanos, Aug 19, 2005.

  1. I just setup a 2003 AD which supports 50 winxp clients and 50 win98 clients.
    The problem is that all users (xp & 98) can access win98 user's shared
    data (user level security) for the first 15-20 minutes after win98 has
    15-20 minutes later if i try to access from the lan the win98 share, i
    am asked for username and password (from winxp pc) or username\IPC$
    message (from win98 pc).
    Win98 are still logon to AD but when i try to modify the users for the
    resource to be shared i get a message that the user list is not
    avaialable and i have to try later.
    The first 15-20 minutes there is no problem at all.
    SP1 and all the hotfixes have applied to Ad, all patches have applied to
    It seems like AD makes some kind of refresh every 15-20 minutes and i
    have to reboot win98 in order to access their shares for 15 minutes more.
    Any ideas?
