I have a odd situation. I have a windows xp pc with a mapped drive to a win2003 server. The machine is not joined to the domain but the mapped drive has worked for two years now. I am currently getting the "login failed user currently disabled" message. I can ping the server just fine but cannot browse to it using ip or name. Whenever i try and do a set time or any function to the server i get the error 5.

Things i have tried:

Spyware cleanup
Time set
creat password to the machine
adding the machine to the shared folder for the xp machine
remove antivirus (on xp machine only)
shutoff win firewall (on xp machine only)

Any help would be appricated

Re: mapped drive not accessable

Did you ever consider that this issue had nothing to do with your local workstation?

Did you check the server for the following;

1. your account is active and not locked due to wrong password?
2. you are still assigned to the share you are mapping to?

Re: mapped drive not accessable

Disconnect the mapped network drive from the XP Computer.

Create an Account from your Windows 2003 Server that matches the UserName and Password of the Client computer. Consider putting a Password.

Then reconnect the mapped network drive again and please let us know.

There was a user already created on the server so I deleted it and recreated it. Also added a password to the xp machine that matched the server user account and still getting same message

Re: mapped drive not accessable

The problem now is since you deleted the user account and recreated it the user account now is not assigned to the share on the file server.

This is why you are now getting the error.

Go back to the server, browse to the share in question and assign this new account to the share at the same permissions levels as other users assigned.

It does not matter is the new account is named like the old one. Each user has a security identifier which is unique. [figured you would ask this question]

Checked the security logs on the server and found it was trying to login under a different account. They must have changed the user name on the xp machine and kept the old credentials. Turns out try disable the user for this hidden/old account. I enabled it and came right back up. Thank you for the quick responses and the time you took on this. Great forum and great iPhone app will def continue to use in the future.
