hello everyone i just configured my first server. I made a domain named "test.local" and added a xp computer to the domain. I can see the computer in the active directory and can log into the domain with the correct username/password.
My problems are:
1) When i change the Group User Policy on the server, it does the changes to the Adminstrator account on the server. I need to know how to remove the server from having these changes. Plus the user account( computer running xp) on my network doesn't seem to get affected by any of these changes that im doing.
The xp computer is on the "Domain Users" group. I don't know what to do since this is my first time using server 2003.
2) I am trying to share a hdd on my network it is sharing because i see the little hand underneath the hdd, but on the xp machine on the domain. I can't see it unless i go to My Computer > Entire Network... I want the hdd to show under My computers on the computers of the network. Is there any way to do this, so the users don't have to be going through the "Entire Network" process?
3) The domain i made test.local was only a test domain. Is there any way i can delete that and make a real one after i finished learning? Thanks guys!!
