Logging in to Non-Domain Network Share from computer on Domain

Q: Logging in to Non-Domain Network Share from computer on Domain

I've got a machine running Windows 7 logged on the network domain but when I try to map a share to a machine on the network, but not registered on the domain I cannot connect (even though I have a local account on the networked machine).When attempting to connect Windows 7 prompts me for my connection credentials and it automatically fills in the domain name.  How can I connect to this network share using credentials that are local to that network share?

Preferred Solution: Logging in to Non-Domain Network Share from computer on Domain

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Logging in to Non-Domain Network Share from computer on Domain

When you say local credentials I assume you mean local on the "TestServer", not local on the Windows 7 box. Then you should be able to just type in TestServer\LocalAccount and the password (the domain you see should automatically switch to "TestServer")Also; have you tried mapping the drive using the IP address (i.e. \\xx.xx.xx.xx\TestShare)?

Can I access a network share on the domain with a non-domain computer? I would connect the computer directly to the corporate network. 
For what reasons could this be blocked (firewall? policy? settings on server-side?) and what configuration is needed to make sure it is possible to access a network share with a non-domain computer?
Thanks already for your help!

PCs are Win 7 Ultimate, All are joined to the Domain
Domain Controller, DNS, DHCP Server (on same instance) is Server 2012 standard
The network topology is like this: Router as Internet Gateway>Switch>Wired to Server and PC's, SIP phones, and Wireless Access Point all on same subnet. DNS and DHCP have been offloaded to Server Roles and switched off on the router.
All of the PCs have network cards that have joined the domain network at least some of the time since I set them up.
Some of them have always picked up the domain network and continue to this day.
Some of them intermittently pick up the domain network and other times join whatever other unmanaged network is available.
Some of them have stopped picking up the domain network altogether and will, no matter how many times their NICs are restarted, always join a non-domain (unmanaged) network.
When the NICs are not joining the domain, they are unable to ping hostnames of any devices on the network but nslookup of the hostnames usually works. The DC, DNS, DHCP server's IP can be pinged without issue, ipv4 or ipv6.
I am recording DNS Client Errors (ID 1014) on all of the PCs during the intervals when their NICs are identifying which network to join.

-On the PCs that are catching the domain network I am only getting a single error about the root domain, eg the domain is ad.domain.com and I am only getting errors about how the configured DNS servers cannot resolve domain.com (nothing with fully qualified

AD domain is Windows Server 2008 R2; domain is mixed Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Pro clients. Users have drive maps via GPO to 3 network shared (home folder, shared volume and apps volume - in that order). XP clients can access all three; most of the Win
7 clients can only access the first and third mapped drives; the second one appears with a red "X" over the drive icon.
I have found several posts that indicate their users are still able to access the x-ed out drive by clicking on it. In our case, attempting to access the drive prompts the user to enter logon credentials to authenticate to the file server. All of the connect
failures are Windows 7 machines (all with the same image and same hardware configuration), but not all of the Windows 7 machines fail - though most do.

Hi there
I have a domain user who has been issued with a new computer. While trying to setup the user account on the new computer we noticed that the user can access her home directory but only on the new computer. On her old computer the user has access as needed.
I have check sharing settings on the server as well as securities settings and the user does have access on both. I even tested an other network share on the same server that I know this user has access to and she can access it without any issues.
Any suggestion as to were I can look for why this isn't working

I'm running into a problem with connecting to network drives over a VPN. The common difference is whether or not the computer is part of the domain by default.

1) Computers connecting to VPN using local account on computer: Prompted for a domain login when attempting to use the network drives. Can get in.

2) Computers connecting to VPN using a domain account (but on another network): Unable to connect. Specific error changed based on below info.
A) Computer logged on and connected to an outside network. Never connected to domain network: Can't find folder error.
B) Connects to domain network at some point before connecting to an outside network and using VPN: Might be in use error, attached.

A:VPN Network Shared Drive Error Domain/Non-Domain Differences

Sounds more like the network the VPN connection puts you in has trouble making kerberos connections to domain controllers, but NTLM connections work fine (kerb might be blocked). The errors are likely bogus if you can get #1 to work - if the computer is connected to a domain it's going to want to use Kerb before NTLM, and if the machine still has (what it thinks is) a viable kerb ticket, it's going to try and validate that with a DC (to achieve auth), and if this fails, so does the connection.

This may not actually be the case, of course, but it sure has the symptoms of it.

Hello,
I have one computer on our domain that can't connect to a shared drive. All other computers can, and it affects everyone who logs into the machine. When you try to map to it, or even use the unc path in windows explorer, you get an access denied error. If
you try from any other machine it works just fine. The machine can connect to other shares on the server just fine. 
Does anyone have any ideas?

Hello,
I have 3 interfaces running Win7 on a company network with 3 network share drives on the server.
These interfaces are part of WORKGROUP.  Mapped drives work while on WORKGROUP settings.
When changing to company domain, drives are no longer mapped with an error 1909.
Tried disabled Windows firewall but this did not help.  Also disconnected drives and tried remapping them to the interface.
Still getting error 1909.  When I return settings to WORKGROUP network status, share drives are accessible.
There are 3 other interfaces running Win7 on the network that I switched to the domain and were able to connect to drives.

The situation that I'm facing is purely economical, to the tune of an extra $2,500 a year in support fees. Were an NPO that supports a particular city agency, so we do have a few perks.

HISTORY: We have a desktop computer that is tied into the municipal net. Tho we own the computer, city decided that they had to bring it up to their standards (or lower it as the case appears) since they would be providing support. The system was bought about 1-1/2 yrs ago, nothing fancy, Dell, Win XP (city's still on XP), Office 2007 Standard. The city took the machine to update it and what we got back was a system with Win XP and Office XP (2002). That's right, the one that's obsolete. For this we pay $2,500/yr which gets a backup server and access to a color laser printer. OK...that's not the complaint.

Last September, we purchased a laptop so we could expand our volunteer help. We figured if we could get the volunteers doing input on the laptop (wireless) then that would free up the desktop for other functions. Not to mention the fact that our closet of an office can't fit more than 2 people comfortably.

My initial thoughts were to setup a VPN and use the city's WIFI, at the location, to allow the desktop and laptop to communicate from anywhere in the building. Well they poo-pood that. Mostly I think they didn't understand it. Anyways, they suggested that we put in an A/B box and a wireless router (see image below). Their were concerned that when... Read more

Hi, I have recently upgraded two machines on a computer network from windows 98SE to windows XP Pro.

I am having a few problems with the Windows XP that I seem unable to resolve, they main problem is to do with the networking of these computers.

I have about 20 machines on my network of which most are windows 98SE, except for the two I have now upgraded to Windows XP Pro for evaluation. Also on the network is a Windows 2000 Server.

The network is a conventional LAN configuration with each PC using a Ethernet card to connect to a Switch.

The windows 2000 server is setup as a domain controller etc...

When using windows 98 everything is fine in the network setup; I select logon on to windows NT domain, type in the name, ensure all the other network settings are correct, such as get IP automatically then when restarting you are presented with a logon box that requests user name, domain and password. type them in hit enter and off you go! Easy!

When I upgraded to Windows XP, if I select connect to domain, and name it correctly it sits there for ages and then eventually says there is no domain available. However if I select connect to workgroup it will connect to the workgroup but not the server. So I know there is nothing wrong with the network connection. Why will it not log onto to my domain.

I've got a perplexing problem that there must be some way to deal with that I'm missing. I'm trying to set up my Win98 computer to dial into a RAS server. If I don't check the box 'Log Into WinNT Domain' in Client for MS networks, I can't access any files on the network once I log in. When I try to open any file I get a box requesting a password which is always rejected. If I do check the box, I get an error every time I boot my computer that it can't find any domain to validate my password even though I set the primary logon to Windows Logon. How can I set it up so don't get bugged at startup but still access the network when I dial in?

So I recently added a new system running x86 windows 7 to the network, and when I log out or shut down using a local account, everything works as it should. If I log on to one of the user domain accounts, however, these actions don't work. Instead, the start menu and icons disappear and I'm left with the desktop background indefinitely.

Unplugging the network cable and plugging it back in then makes the system proceed to regular log out / shut down procedures, but I'm not sure why... Any ideas on some setting that is mis-set?

Also, this only seems to happen the first time I attempt to log out or shut down since the last reboot. So, if I log in to a domain account and try to log out, it will do this "freeze". Then, I unplug the network cable and plug it back in, and then the system logs out of the account. If I then log back in and try to log out again, it will work fine. But if I reboot the machine, the problem returns.

A:Logging onto Domain with NT Server

Can you ping the domain controller that you are trying to connect to? If so, then check the WINS settings and DNS settings. You might create an LMHOSTS file with the DC info in it. If all that is OK, then you should be able to join the domain with an admin account and password. If you are on the same subnet, you could install NETBEUI protocol to perform the connection. Just remove it after the domain connection is made.

Hello everybody.
Due to my lack of knowledge about Windows 7 Security, I used to think  I could not log in with a Domain User Profile when my pc was not physically on the domain's intranet itself , that is when the domaiin server was unreachable.  Instead, a colleague
showed me I was wrong and made me log in with my domain user even on a different intranet.

The problem now is that, this way, internet Explorer 11 cannot surf anymore to whatever site , it always complains it cannot reach the page. Google Chrome instead, works perfectly. 
I realized that, by disconnecting the domain user,  and using a local user , Internet Explorer works correctly.

I am busy looking in to having our remote users connect to our domain via a 1 or 2mb broadband connection.

The connection is secured by a good VPN, but I am now wondering about their profile info and application settings.

I would ideally like it so they can log in at any machine at any site and have all their files etc.

I can do this easily for their My documents, but I wondered what the best way was for them to keep all their application settings and setup.

Obviously giving them a profile path in their Active Directory profile would give them roaming profiles, but this is very slow over a broadband link, so I want to kind of have roaming profiles, but without all the slowness.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

If their credentials are verified by the VPN that you are using then they should be able to browse through and connect to any machine on the domain as long as they have sufficient privileges !!
It should be like any other user on the domain !

Hello All,
I've been rather unsuccessful in finding (or at least searching for) a solution to a rather tricky problem I have encountered with another user. 
The user in question has a domain account that they log into a domain joined computer. When they start up the computer after turning it off the previous day, restart the computer, or even lock the computer (through CTRL+ALT+DEL or Windows+L)
it will send them to the login screen where the default and only profile is on the screen. After putting in their password, it simply sends them back to the same "Press CTRL+ALT+DEL" screen. This happens with each attempt and is reproducible,
no other errors show such as "Incorrect Password". For the user to login, they must go to the lower left of the screen, click on "Switch User", and then click on their same profile for it to accept the password and log them in. The user
must do this for every instance that they power cycle, restart, or lock their computer. 
Any advice on this issue is much appreciated as I had said above, I have not had much success with figuring out a solution for this.

Alright, so I've started a new job and it's time to put out some fires. Here's the deal. Our network domain is E-HAMPTON, it's a winnt 4.0 network. We have a windows 2003 webserver that you can link to at http://e-hps.net That webserver is on the domain e-hps.net What I want to know is if I put that webserver on the E-HAMPTON domain, am I going to lose web connectivity to http://e-hps.net or is that an entirely different issue? If I put the webserver in our network domain is it going to try to take over all domain authentication? Also if anyone see's any other potential pitfalls please pass them along.
 

A:A web domain and a network domain

Ok, so E-Hampton is the Primary Domain Controller (PDC). Correct?

Is the Windows 2003 webserver running XP Pro with PWS? Windows 2003 Server w/ IIS? Enterprise Server w/ISS? Apache?

Is it configured as a Domain Controller on the e-hps.net network?

There was a pretty big jump from NT 4 to the Windows 2000/Windows 2003 architecture as far as domains go. With 2003 you're into the world of Active Directory, Trees, and Forests.

As for whether or not you'll lose connectivity, it depends on how the network is set up, whether it is assigned a static IP address or on a DHCP controller with a reserved address, whether or not it is in a DMZ, etc., etc., etc. Is it a dual NIC machine (one NIC to the network, the other to the Internet)?

There is an awful lot going on there. We'd almost need to see a diagram to make a call on this one.

In short, this isn't as simple a question as it sounds.

My apologies, I'm a moderate user, but this one has me stumped.
I have a client whom I work for, and I have two computers, one on a domain for the client, and one that is not on any network. Technically I own both computers, despite the fact one is connected to their domain. Essentially, I want to share the internet connection of the domain computer on the non-domain computer.
The domain computer has 2 ethernet cables, and I have tried a patch cable and a I also have a spare netgear switch if needed. I understand the domain computer would have to be on for the other computer to access the internet. I tried to use the network connection wizard but it comes up that since the computer already belongs to a domain, it won't do anything. I'm not even worried about sharing files on the domain computer, though it would help (the computer isn't exactly secure central, I'm actually uploading files to their computer as part of my job, which is my only reason for letting them shackle my computer to their domain)

I cannot get either of the XP Pro boxes to share their printer with the Win 98 machine. When I try to install the network printer (or even install it locally and then try to enter in the "port"), I get a box that comes up about IPC$ (May not be the right letters) and it wants a password. No password that I use anywhere on the domain will make it work! I have scoured the Internet and have done anything I have been able to find. Mostly that it has to be an administrator and that the 98 logged in user has to be a user on the XP Pro box and they must share the same password and it has to have a password; can't be a blank password that is used. Etc. All to no avail.

I have installed net beui everywhere also. I have flushed DNS. OH! I put both of them in a workgroup and then XP Pro is just a happy camper about sharing the printer with the 98 machine. But I need the XP Pro box to be logged into the domain to get another piece of software to work correctly with the server. But I did that as a test just to see if it would and it did.

I read today to delete the user on the XP Pro box and add them again. I have not tried that but the user was not on the XP Pro box when I started and then I added the user so I don't... Read more

Hi, we are experiencing this issue lately in our domain and it happens randomly to some of our users where they cannot unlock their computer.


We are sure the user account is not locked in AD and nor password is expired. The user account was successfully used for log in when the computer first turned on but when trying to unlock their computer after locking it, it says "The username or password
is incorrect".  It seems to only happens when the computer is connected to domain network. When we unplug the LAN cable, the computer can be unlocked normally using their account password. But it will happen again when the computer is locked while connected to domain.
We have to unplug the LAN cable again and this will keep happening constantly until we restart or force shutdown the computer. Even after restarting the computer, things will only go normally for a few times until it then showing the same behavior again.
Our active directory is using windows 2012 R2 server and never had any of this issue before. Can anyone please help us? Many thanks in advance.

     Some computers, after joining a domain, and restarting a machine  do not see the domain anymore. Instead of that I see "Unidentified network" in my Network and sharing center, in active networks list. If I click the
network icon and click "Merge or delete network locations" I can see my domain network in the list marked as managed and not in use.
    Sometimes it helps to leave and re-join the domain, but other machines cannot identify domain at all.

Is there a simple way of re-joining the computer to the domain?

I have many computers running Windows 8.1 that will be logged onto the same domain account. I want the profile to be built on the computers before the first time they log on to save time, as they will be logging on with a wireless connection being
shared with over 30 computers at once. 

Is there a way to build the profile in the background, so the users can still use the computers for unrelated tasks?

I set up a new Windows 7 professional system and now, for some reason, the system will only let me log into using a local user. I cannot access the domain user account. I can see all the workstations/servers but unable to change from local to domain user.

Has the computer been joined to the domain? This can only be done by a member of the domain administrators group.

I have two machines running win95 and they will only give me the logon screen to get into a domain after I click on log out and log back in.

By login screen I mean name, password and domain. According to what I can see the NIC cards are set up properly and I have green lights in the back.

There are other 95 machines that are setup and running properly and as far as I can tell all machines are set up the same in Net Neighborhood.
 

A:{Advice Offered} - win95 not logging into the domain

Greetings
<ol>
[*] Make sure your network settings are set to use Client for Microsoft Networks as it's logon, and that the Domain name is correct in the Properties.

[*] Look to see if TweakUI is installed, and set to auto logon (check in the control Panel for the TweakUI applet)

[*] Do a search for all *.PWL files and delete them.

[*] Reboot[/list=a]

Hope that helps

We would like to make it so that when a user logs onto the network (domain) a popup box shows up with a message, the message needs to be changable on a regular basis, it is for a school. Does anyone know of any software that can do this?

Thanks in advance!!

I know that to log onto a local account when on the domain in windows 7 you would use .\ before the username. ex ( .\larry ).

I also understand that typing the user name "administrator" automatically sets it from domain to local. My question is, is there something I can change, such as the registry or user profile so that a different account ( such as larry) does the same as administrator, which is automatically change from domain to local upon typing the name in the user field?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I am hoping to setup a laptop to log onto a domain using a dialup connecting (actually a 3g card) but im not sure how to go about it, will the domain controller itself need a public ip to make this possible? Or can I setup some sort of port forwarding arrangement to make it work?
 

A:logging onto a server2003 domain using dialup connection

You will need VPN access through their firewall (username/password) or if they are port forwarding 1723 straight to the DC you will need only a local username/password on the Network.

You need to have this sorted before creating a PPTP connection. Dial-up shouldn't be a problem, just a little slower than usual.

1. Obtain username/password for VPN connection
2. Obtain Public Ip address or host name (mail.whatever.com) for where you are trying to connect to
3. Create a PPTP connection or install 3rd party application to connect once you are on the internet.

Good luck! :grinthumb

Hi,

Just purchased a laptop and it is running windows xp pro. At work I log into a domain and today finally got that to work on my personal laptop.

Until now I could use my home lan by signing on.

Now that I modified the login so can log onto domain, I can not figure out how to log in and access my lan resources at home.

any suggestions would be great.

I have searched the forums for two weeks and I still cannot log into a Samba domain controller. I have tried everything suggested including upgrading my version of Samba to 3.3.4 and it only made matters worse. After two weeks, I am able to have my laptop join the domain, but after I reboot and try to log into the domain as a user, it keeps giving me the lost trust error, meaning that the creds were rejected. I have tried every combo of enabling and disabling of the RequiredSignOrSeal and RequireStrongKey registry entries and still nothing. If anyone has a patch or another workaround to get this working, I am all ears. The funny thing about all of this is when I log into the local host account, I can see the other machines on the domain. Could this mean I am actually logging into the domain and I don't even know it or is that a whole other issue seeing as how the login screen is telling me I am logging into the local machine? Again, any help would be appreciated!

A:Windows 7 Pro logging into Samba domain controller

What's the "local host account"?

How do you "see" the other machines "on the domain" when logged on as that account?

To troubleshoot this without guessing:

- www.wireshark.org
- install
- start a packet trace log
- quickly repro the symptom
- stop and save the trace
- zip and upload here.

Analysis of a packet trace is the best way to troubleshoot networking issues. Once the activity "on the wire" is understood, it's possible to be more focused in searching for a resolution.
