error 5 connecting to Ghost share

    We've set up a (Win2K3) server that holds Ghost images in a share from which
    we can pull down images to workstations using the Ghost boot diskette.

    Problem is we can no longer map a drive using 'net use g: \\server\share',
    because error 5/access denied comes up, asking for a password that never
    works. The mapping always used to work. The permissions are sufficient and
    always worked before.

    This is totally mystifying -- there's no password on the share, this is a
    Windows 2K3 domain!

    I have a feeling this is a known problem, but I can't find any info on it.

    Anyone know what could be the cause ?

  2. Delete the share, then recreate it:

    net share Images /del
    net share Images=d:\Images

    Now check the "Images" share permissions via "My Computer". They
    are NOT the NTFS permissions!

    Where do you suggest we do this -- at the command prompt in windows or in
    DOS, when booting from the ghost floppy ?
    It's clear to me that the share pemissions are not the same as the NTFS
    permissions, but I think the share permissions (Domain Admins - Full,
    Authenticated Users - Change) are more than adequate (since the mapping
    always worked before it suddenly stopped working).

    The boot floppy client has always been set to log on as domain

  4. DOS is not capable of connecting to Server2003 until you weaken the security
    of 2003. This was not the case with 2000 and older. The article does not
    mention DOS (nobody remembers it exists I guess) but the same issue applies.
