|I suppose this is a slightly unusual scenario. I am running a home network, and have an old desktop running server 2003 SP2 to try and learn about servers and networking.|
The router runs DHCP, the server has DNS and AD.
I would like to have the NAS available for backup purposes, but also for file-sharing when the server is not running (as it's a home network, I do not wish the server to be running 24/7)
There are only 2 clients - one running Vista Home Premium, the other running XP Pro.
The problem I have is that if the server is running, all devices can connect to a shared file or folder, however, if I secure those shares, allowing only certain users, I can not get the clients to talk to the share (though they will without the security). It seem sto be that the clients are trying to force the use of domain logins to the NAS even if the domain is no longer present.
How can I set things up so that if the server is present, UserName includes network credentials, but does not if the server is not present?
(The NAS can use either domain replicated users, or users created on the NAS itself)
