Hi,

I am trying to access a network share on my child domain, ie I go to start, run on my applications server in my parent domain and type \\servername.

At this point I get the following error

"servername" is not accessible
Logon failure: account currently disabled


How can I resolved this...

Thanks :tazz:

are you running NT4 domain? or 2000/2003 domain?
the above are different, in NT4 you need to enable trust between your parent and child domain, that would give you enough security permissions to access shares across domains.

if you are in 2000/2003 domain you don't need to do anything. as the AD would propogate all your permissions down the tree unless otherwise specified.

You only need to give permissions on a domain access group (you should be member of) on that folder from the AD.

the active directory should take care of permissions, but you will need to create that share and give both security and sharing permissions on that folder and all sub folders.
