Changed Win2k Server name and now can't file share
Posted 12 August 2002 - 06:50 PM
Then I tried to browse the server's shares from the clients. (98se) through Net 'hood. When I attempt to open the server's icon, it want's a password for IPC$. I never set one, nor saw this dialog previously. I tried to manually map a drive to a share that was already available and it came up with a password too, which I never set. No shares on the server have passwords. All shares have 'Everyone' with Full Control.
So I removed all the shares on the server, then recreated them, thinking that like user accounts, each one is unique and I threw it off by changing the server name. Tried to browse shares...still asks for an IPC$ password, or an password for the resource as I attempt to Map Drive.
I unchecked File Sharing in the Network settings, rebooted, then rechecked it, and added a few shares...and still the shares are asking me for a password I didn't set.
So next I uninstalled File sharing, rebooted, then reinstalled it, added a share, and I still can't browse shares nor map a drive.
This server is a standalone, not part of a domain, not Active directory..not even NTFS.
Logon name for my client has an account on the server, partially coincidence...the other client doesn't use the account I made for her. I just reloaded her machine with win98se (She had WinME ::barf:
The server is able to browse shares of the 98 machine, copy files, etc just fine. The server's IIS process works, I can pcAnywhere to it as well.

I can understand in my environment, with AD/NTFS having to recreate login's...but oh well! It's working again.

If the user logged on to the win98 machine with the same password as the account you have set up for the share on the server then it is ok if the paswords match..
I hope this will help
