    Hello All;

    We have in plant:
    Win2003 Ent. Domain Controller
    Win2003 Ent. Stand Alone Server
    4 x NT4 Servers
    2 x Win2k Pro's

    This is the problem that we are having.

    The 2nd Win2003 Server, When creating Drive/Folder Shares.
    We are unable to allow "Domain Members" to be added to the Shares.
    In the [Location] The only computer in the list is the Win2003 Server
    It is not showing the Win2003 DC. (Not sure if it suppose to or not)
    So when we try to add: domain\user it cannot locate that user
    The object named: "user" cannot be found.
    All computers are members of the "Win2003 DC"

    How can I allow other computers in the Domain to be able to access the
    2nd Win2003 Server?

    Thank You

    Is it a domain member? i.e. did you logon with domain credentials to the
    local console?
    If it is, then it should be able to see the domain controller. If not, it
    should be.

    Yes Sir;

    Logged on as the Domain Member User.

    User if a Member of:

    Domain Admin
    Domain Users
    Enterprise Admin
    Group Policy Creator Owners
    Schema Admins

    The system is logged on as the Domain member.
    So that is what is so strange?

    Any idea's?
    The same Credentials that are for this Member, is also for other members
    Which are running Win2ks and WinNT4's
    And neither of them have this problem?

    Thank You

    You're logged on as a user and trying to administer the box?
    Do you get the same results logged in as a domain admin?

    The user account is a member of the Domain Admin.

    Will write back soon on my findings.

    This fixed the problem

    "Kevin D. Goodknecht Sr. [MVP]" >
    Once I deleted out the other DNS Servers IP Address's
    And rebooted the 2003 Server.
    All is great. :)

    Take Care
