VPN Network Shared Drive Error Domain/Non-Domain Differences

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

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.

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: 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.

At my work, we are upgrading all computers from Windows 7 to Windows 10 (roughly about 12 computers total). So far 6 of them have been upgraded successfully with not network issues. There is a company domain in place. After upgrading the 7th computer, a Dell Latitude E6410, to windows 10, I cannot access the shared drive on the network. I can connect to the network, see shared printers and any shared workstations, and can even access the internet, but cannot connect to the shared drive. When attempting to do so, the message about missing network protocols come up. I have tried a few suggested fixes but cannot fix the issue.

Any ideas?

hi

i have changed the domain of the computer (from say old.net to new.net).
there is a folder shared on another machine on old.net domain. the user X was able to access it. aftter changing his domain from old.net to new.net he no longer can access that shared folder.
User X has working credentials for both domains.

on accessing it it asks for credentials. upon entering his correct user name in the format (old.net\X) he is not able to access it.

i had exactly same setup with another user Y and he was able to access data .

is there anything that i am missing ?

Hi,

I hit major problems yesterday when a power surge killed my server (despite ups/surge protection!). We have a small set up of 15 win2k machines and one Windows server 2003 all connected under a domain.

Basically all user machines were unaffected but my only method of getting us up and running was installing a fresh version of 2003 server on a new machine. i followed this guide and configured it to use the same domain as last time (hoping that all the client machines would carry on as they were before the server out). i've managed to set up access to shared drives hosted on the network. That is working.

However i am now having these problems on all client machines

Client machines cannot connect to shared printers from another client machine. - Logging on as an administrator to their machine locally (not domain) you can add and print. Simply changing their policies to admin does not allow them access.
Each machines is still connected to the domain (so it says) but if you take them off and try to put them back on the domain i get this error:the following error occurred attempting to join the domain " ". network path was not found
If somebody can help me out i would be very gratefull. I'm alright with basic networking but have never installed Win server from fresh.

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.

We have been getting sporadic reports from our users of the error, "The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed."  The workaround has been to dejoin and rejoin the domain, but it keeps happening and we need a permanent
fix.  We are primarily a laptop shop.
It has been suggested we disable the automatic machine accouint password change on our domain members in GPO.  While this may be a viable option with relatively low security risks, I'd really like to figure out why it's happening and try to
fix it. 
The machines can lose the trust relationship at random.  It can happen overnight, or after going into hibernation.  I've had it happen to me a few times.  The DCs (we have 2) both show error 5722, but one is spitting out a specific Kerberos
error that the other one is not:

While processing an AS request for target service krbtgt, the account kriegesh did not have a suitable key for generating a Kerberos ticket (the missing key has an ID of 2).
The requested etypes : 18. The accounts available etypes : 23  -133  -128  3  1. Changing or resetting the password of kriegesh will generate a proper key.
My main issue is trying to determine why this continues happening and if we can resolve it without disabling the account password.  If that IS our best option, then so be it.  Any
thoughts are welcome.
Thank you very much in advance!  ~Sarah

So, I'm connected to my college network via VPN and would like to map a network drive. When I try to access the share on the network form 'RUN', it sure does ask me the username/password credentials, but I understand the domain is the problem here.
The domain it's trying to use is apparently wrong and I'm not able to change it. Any ideas? The domain it's giving is
Domain : <Windows 7 system username>-PC

Which is not what I want. I'm not able to change it as well

EDIT:

Oh nevermind, I just gave the domain name as part of the username and it worked!
For example : username : Campus\userid

A:Map network drive on different domain

So you tried and put in domain name\userid and it still won't accept it?

If that the case, i think it's your credentials or the share isn't shared probably.

There is one computer in my active directory domain that has some intermittent network issues. Occasionally (haven't found any pattern) there is a Windows 7 pro 64-bit computer that is unreachable in the network directory. This computer is sharing a printer that is used by other users at different workstations on the network. While the issue is happening the printer will show as offline to anyone else on the network who has the printer added and it cannot be printed from. I have reviewed the security privileges for that printer and all users have print access. It seems the printer issue is secondary to the fact that the computer is unreachable on the network, which makes sense. I have also tried a variety of the generic "Printer shows as offline" and "Network path error" fixes with no success. As of right now the issue is not currently happening so I am unable to do additional tests like pinging to see results. Please let me know if there is additional information about the environment that you would like and I will provide it.


Thanks in advance for the help.

A:Intermittent network path error on PC in AD domain

Welcome to Seven Forums,

One thing to investigate is.... The computer that has the printer shared needs to have good hardware specs (RAM and Processor). I've encountered this issue at my work. Also, if the computer has a lot of programs/apps being utilized daily and acting as a print server that will cause the computer to freeze and disconnect from the network, the temporary work around is to restart the computer.

I would also check if the computer goes to standby mode, please check the power options (Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options).

Hope this helps.

I am usually the person to go to when someone has computer problems, however this time I am stumped. I am running on average thirteen computers on my network. Recently we switched nine of those computers over to Windows 7. I am unsure if it is just a Windows 7 problem, but every time someone docks their computer in the morning (most of the employees here take their computers home) they do not connect to the network properly an they get domain.local (unauthenticated) with the yellow triangle warning sign. This problem has not been specific to any computer, just the ones with Windows 7, and sometimes it happens sometimes it doesnt. What happens is while trying to figure out what is wrong, the error goes away and the computer connects to the network but only for a period of time, sometimes most of the day and sometimes only ten or fifteen minutes.

I tried disabeling the TCP/IP 6 - no difference
I tried removing the computer from the network and reconnecting it - no difference
I called in outside IT people - no difference

More details about your network, please. What version of Windows 7? You have a domain, or just a router? Connecting by ethernet or wireless? If by wireless, does ethernet work OK?

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.

Hi all...

I'm one of the techs working in a large Win Server 2003 domain. All our workstations use Windows XP.

In one location on the network, I've got a workstation with a local printer attached via USB. For some of the other workstations in that phyisical location, I want to be able to print to that printer.

I shared the printer on the workstation that has it, then installed that printer on the other workstations as a "shared network printer." All this of course had to be done as local Administrator.

However, when my users log in with their domain accounts, they can't see the shared printer that I set up using the administrator account.

A friend says that is just how it works in Windows XP, and that the only way around it is to buy a small print server box. Is he right? I would hate to do this since this situation is going to be replicated about 8 times in other locations on my network/domain.

Hello everyone,

We are running into a somewhat peculiar issue that I have been unable to find any information about and I was hoping someone here could point me in the right direction.



Several of our Windows 7 laptops (We're working on moving to W10) have become unable to change the password for a domain account from the Change a Password screen after hitting CTRL ALT DEL. Usually when someone would select to change their password,
it would take them to the text boxes with the domain\username pre-populated, I'm sure you are familiar.

Recently, when following the same steps, an account selection screen comes up with the option to use a smart card or simply type in the username. While we are working on implementing smart cards, they are not yet in use and in fact should not even
show any options for them yet. After opting to type in a user account, rather than populating the username field with domain\username, the field remains blank with grey text saying "provider\user name" instead. If the user types in their domain\username
and attempts to change the password, they get a generic error stating it is unable to change the password.



Users are still able to use a co-workers machine to change their password from the same screen by substituting the username. Most of the affected machines are from users that work in the same team, even though those same users can change their passwords
elsewhere just fine. It appears to be isolated to specific ... Read more

it says network name is no longer available. when I log onto another machine it connects and maps normally. all other servers UNC name works normally. I can ping it by DNS and IP and can RDP to it but not see any shares.

Please can you help?

Here is the scoop ... Two networks connected via frame relay line. Two different PDCs and domain names. Can ping internal IP address, but can not browse through Network Neighborhood. Set up WINS on both and when trying to get them to share info I get Connection was aborted by the remote WINS in the event log. I can see the IP addresses for the remote network through the DHCP manager. Any ideas on what I should do to be able to browse the remote network and also set it up so that I can administer it remotely, would be greatly appreciated.

I have scoured the Networking and Sharing portion of this Win 10 Forum for an answer to my issue but have not found anything that works.

We have a peer to peer network, with one Win 10 machine (acting as server - which we call server) which shares several hard drives for everyone in the office to access. It has network discovery on, file and printer sharing on, turn off password protected sharing off. It has all the drives named and shared properly so everyone has full access. All the other Win 7, and Win 8 machines have complete access as designed. Another Win 10 machine has complete access as designed. All machines are part of the same workgroup Engineer. My machine is a Lenovo laptop which was upgraded from Win 8 to Win 10. When I try to access the Win 10 machine (which is acting as server), I get the Enter Network credentials pop-up asking for Username and Password which we do not use nor have ever set up on the Win 10 machine or any other. I know that there are several posts that have the Enter Network credentials popping up, but the difference is that their screenshot showed them as part of a workgroup. See the following:
When I get the same pop-up on my Lenovo Laptop It looks like the following:

My System Properties information:

Notice that the example above which is part of the workgroup has no reference to a domain. My pop-up on the Laptop shows reference to a domain, and whats interesting is that the domain is the computer name of the laptop itself... Read more

Ok, I'm currently being hosted with Dreamhost.com, but my domain is with FXDomains.com. How do I make it so that the domain I have at FXDomains.com will work like the domain I have at Dreamhost.com, for example FXDomains.com provides me with the domain x.com, however Dreamhost.com provides me with y.com. I want to make it so that when someone goes to x.com, it behaves like y.com, such as x.com/forums would go the same place as y.com/forums It's not domain forwarding, it's something ro do with DNS or something. I changed my FXDomains.com's DNS thing to NS1.DREAMHOST.COM, NS2.DREAMHOST.COM & NS3.DREAMHOST.COM so what do I do now?

Hello everyone,

So on my work laptop yesterday i got disconnected from the network, and upon trying to reconnect i had internet access but no network access, ran through some diag, was able to ping my other work station, ip,dns and dg where all fine, checked for dns records issue, none found. so i removed it from the domain and tried re-adding it, and this is where the problem is no matter what i do i cannot add this laptop on the domain. i get full internet access on the network but no network access. i know the Dns server is functioning perfectly and cant be the issue, i have also flushed dns, rebuilt tcp/Ip stack and removed all lan and wlan profiles. i am also getting a certificate error when trying to access the network on wlan.

Using my local admin here are some print screens of first the issue when trying to add the laptop back to the domain, then Ping results to my DNS server .

after removing the machine from the domain it now no longer picking up the correct DNS server.

Would assigning a new DNS record resolve the issue???

he following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "bareesc.bareescentuals.com":

The error was: "DNS name does not exist."

A:An active directory domain controller for the domain could not be contacted

Funny enough, we've found a handful of users on our network today unable to access local resources for the same reason!

Your DNS settings are being hijacked. They should point at your DC, but instead are pointed at a malicious DNS server hosted somewhere in Israel. Give your computer a good bath before letting play with the other children again.

We're currently in the process of mediation around here, too.

Hope that helps!

I've been trying to join a new Windows 7 Professional machine to a domain controller running Windows 2003 Server with no luck.  We currently have 4 Windows XP machines running on that domain without any issues, but when I try to add the Windows 7 computer,
here is what happens:

A computer account on the domain could not be found (confirmed it is already there)
I put in the computer name and domain again, and Administrator credentialsNow it tells me: "An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a DC in the domain being joined has failed."
I currently have DNS on the Windows 7 PC set to the Domain Controller and have IPv6 unchecked under Network Properties.  I can even ping the domain name (resolves to IP of the domain controller).  It looks like it can, indeed, find the domain from
the message in step 1, so am I missing something here?
Thanks in advance for any help!

A:Cannot join Windows 7 to domain even after setting DNS to domain controller IP

Hi,
You need flush your DNS cache in client side first.
Then, let?s create the following registry value for a try:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManWorkstation\Parameters
 
 - Created a DWORD DomainCompatibilityMode = 1
 - Created a DWORD DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0
Reboot the machine and check the result again.Alex Zhao

Hi,

I have a domain joined windows 7pro (64bit) not able to connect to shared folder on a non domain joined pc with windows 7pro (32bit). Only public folders are accessible. I get a do not have permission message, I tried adding the domain\user to share permissions but domain is not recognized on the non domain-joined pc.

Does my domain admin have access to the homegroup and the shared folders on the home pc?

What are my options for access to a non public secure folder on the non domain pc from the domain joined pc.


Sorry for the awkward description, don't know how else to describe the situation.

my apologies if these questions were addressed elsewhere, I could not find any relevant threads.

Thanks

A:Domain joined pc, does domain admin have access to my homegroup

Hi Takatso, welcome to sevenforums. As I read you post, it looks like you are logged into your domain joined PC as a domain user is this correct? If so, your PC will be treated as acting as a part of the domain. If you then try and connect to another pc at home, there will be a problem as your home pc is not recognised by the domain pc as part of the domain. You should set yourself up a user account on the domain pc whilst it is NOT connected to the domain, login to the new account whilst not on the domain and then try sharing the folders with the non-domain pc.

No, your does not have access on the home computer as they are part of the domain and not the homegroup.

I don't even know how to word the question. Here is what I got.  I apologize in advance if this is posted in the wrong place.  I will gladly repost if necessary.
I have one Windows 7 desktop (out of a couple of 100 Windows 7 and 10 machines) that I have put onto our domain.  When the user turns it on she gets the domain "username/password screen", logs in and all is good.  A few times
over the last several months the computer is turned on and the user does not get the domain login screen but boots right to local desktop.  This computer is no longer connected to the domain.
I assumed the user did something so I put the computer back on the domain.  I logged in as user and it created a new profile.  All programs that I installed were not there including Office products, AV products etc.  Could not find any reference
on the hard drive that they ever were there.  This user now has username.000 001 002 etc.  When I put the pc back onto the domain I also copy documents from the previous profiles that I have found.  All profiles will have the same date which
corresponds when the issue presents itself. 
Restore points are not there.  Windows updates are run as if this is a new machine out of the box.  I am completely baffled. All help is appreciated.

Edited - I have noticed that my event log has several entries dated from when we purchased the pc and then the date ski... Read more

Hello everyone.

A while back before I knew better I gave a client of mine an active directory domain that ended in .org and did not exist on the internet at the time. Now, I'm discovering in the DNS event log at regular intervals errors about how the computers in the internal domain are unable to register in the DNS server of the web domain of the same name. So, my question is whether there is something I can do to change the Active Directory domain so that I don't get those errors anymore.
They're running Windows 2003 server standard with Active Directory, roaming profiles, routing and remote access for VPN, DHCP server, standard fileserver, and print server. I may have missed one or two things but likely I haven't. The server has itself as the primary DNS server though it's not the 127 address it's the actual IP. The secondary server is the router but I have the DHCP giving out the servers for opendns.com as options 3 and 4 after the Domain Controller and the router but I had the problem before adding the opendns.com entries.
Anyone know why the local DNS server is trying to register entries in the DNS server of the web domain? Anyone have any ideas on how I can go about fixing it?
Thanks

Joe

P.S. if this is a question more appropriate for another area feel free to move it.

We have domain and time to time we need to share a local printer to other computers. For years we could just type in the computer name //blehbleh and there we can see the shared printer. After June 15th ish this no longer works. This does however work for
administrators but not for normal users. We just get the access denied error. If I go to networks I can even see the computer but if you try to connect to the computer you are not prompted for administrator user/pw to access it either.

Thanks,

PC was on Windows home version. It was upgraded to Windows Pro but it made us install the anniversity update before we could upgrade.

Joined the computer to the domain with no issue. After reboot we could not log in with the domain user account. Tried other domain accounts too, even domain admin account. It say username or password is incorrect but that is not true.

Tried to unjoin and rejoin to the domain no luck.

Confirmed dns settings on the PC. Using wired connection. Not going through a VPN connection or anything like that.

I am set up on a domain from an old work server that no longer exists and I want to switch back to a non-domain setup (XP Pro). I am worried that I might lose all of my data/settings/etc. Is there a certain procedure I should follow to make the change?

My Desired Outcome:

1) Change the name of my computer.
2) Remain the administrator
3) Keep all the data and settings as they are in my existing user account
4) Ditch the domain (and cached login profile) I am currently using
5) Get rid of useless drive mappings
5) Still use a user/pass to login (for security purposes)

This is my personal laptop and I am the local admin on my pc. I had the admin login on the domain, but the server no longer exists.

A:How Do I Switch From Domain To Non-domain?, without losing my data

I had the admin login on the domain, but the server no longer exists.stravs,Ok let's get started on this. You said you are the local administrator on your laptop, good you need to be! Now even though the laptop is not accessing the server anymore you can still login to the domain administrator account, if someone has logged into that account before. Basically if the domain administrator has signed onto that laptop when it was on the server at one point, the system will remember the cached password for that account. You won't really need it as long as you have the local administrator login.Just a thought, do you have access to another computer and the internet, or are you using this laptop to sign on here and get instructions? If this laptop is your only means for getting on the net, I would print these instructions out.1) You will want to rem... Read more
