  • Managing a Workgroup only network

    After much reading and frustration i wanted to post this consolidated tip.

    Network: 6 PC's on XP Pro.

    I reinstalled all PC's in the network (they were due and running bad). Once reinstalled, I wanted to manage the whole Workgroup with Hyena. All I could get for a day and a half was ACCESS DENIED on every remote PC's resources.

    When installing Hyena to manage a WORKGROUP, please do the following.

    On the client PC's change the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Lsa

    The default is 1. This will change the shares in XP to be set more like you would in W2K.

    Official Read:;EN-US;q290403

    Once the registry change is made, reboot both the client and the admin PC that is running Hyena.

    Should be all she wrote!

    Thank you kstanush for your post 1-23-04 which led to this knowledge.
