Windows 95 and Active Directory

May 6, 2009 at 13:47:10
Specs: Windows XP
Since changin domain from nt to ad i can't log into domain. "domain password is invalid or your access has been denied". I verified all network settings were changed and correct. Using LMhosts file and pointing to correct place. Machine shows under new domain and I can see network via network neighborhoods; but can't log into new domain but can still log into old domain. Even though new domain is in network configuration. Finally was able to share folders w/ AD Clients by changing the share level to user instead of share level. Can anyone help me log onto new domain?

Pretty sure you need mixed mode setup on server.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

what do you mean you changed the domain from NT to AD?

Why are you using a lmhosts file? Proper file to use is Hosts but you should not need either since to do Active Directory you needed MS DNS server which is what you should be using.

Did you do any research on 95 and AD before you made changes?

yes, did research; I only have this one client which is a machine controller that uploads files from network. We are using DNS Server / Windows Server 2003; I can ping, and browse network. Just can't get login to authenicate to 2003 Server.

do you mean when you try to logon locally to the server?
or when you try to logon via a client pc?

Do you know the server admin password?

Got it; dropped all network configuration. Reinstalled network, tcip and nic drivers. configured network connectivity, used the lmhost file already had, re-installed dsclient.exe
