Q: My AT gets "access denied" from the music share on my new RC1 Windows
.Net Server. It previously was working very successfully with my Win 2000
server, however a server hardware failure caused me to replace the server
with a new one and on a whim I elected to try RC1 Windows .Net Server.
Other than the AT issue I have had no problems with RC1 Windows .Net
server and like it very much.
The Windows 2000 server was set up as a single domain controller on my
small home network as is my new .Net server. In both cases I created an
account in the domain for the AT with matching name and password entered
on the AT. The AT was previously updated to 3.0 and as I mentioned had
no difficulty with the Windows 2000 server. Although it cannot access
files on the .Net server, the AT has no difficulty accessing files on my
Windows XP Pro system (a member of the domain) using the same user
account name that I created on the domain controller.
I am certain the .Net server shares are identical to those that worked
so successfully on the Windows 2000 server. Given that Windows XP seems
happy with the account name authentication, I can only guess my problem
comes from some increase in the share security of .Net server.
I really want to get the AudioTron playing the files stored on the .Net
server. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
A: This one ended up in the per-machine policy, instead of the domain
controller policy for the whole domain. On your PC, start gpedit.msc,
then go to Local Computer Settings -> Computer Configuration -> Windows
Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options,
make sure that "Microsoft network server : Digitally sign communications
(always)" is disabled. Then, make sure it is also disabled or not
defined in the domain "Domain Controllers" OU (start dsa.msc, right
click on "Domain Controllers", Properties, Group Policy, etc. etc.)
When done, run 'gpupdate' to force a refresh quickly.
