We had a server that was a domain controller for our department and it died. Rather than getting a new server we are got setup on the company's servers with a virtual server. The old server was named dept. the virtual server is deptvm. The old domain was work, the new domain is work.x.y. Our department no longer has a server guy he quit over a year ago so I'm doing it now. The companies IT set up the new server and active directory (server 2003). I have entered many of the user into the new AD and also their machines names. I have gone to several of the machines and changed thair domains from work to work.x.y. In the past each machine would login local or to the domain work. Now their are 4 choices work, x, y, or local machine. When I log one into the domain they seem to authenticate, but they cannot access shares on other computers on the domain. The permissions on the shares have been updated. The computers can see the computers that are on the domain once i do a flushdns to clear the old dns info out. The problem is when I try to connect to a share it lets me into the host computer but then I actually try to open the shares it says no permission to open. its like the users are not actually getting authenticated. any ideas on what to do to clear this up? There are a few machines that are hooked up and working correctly. Ive tried dumping the machines fomr the domain to a workgroup then moving them back to teh domain and that isnt fixing it.
any help is appreciated.
