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
ForceGuest=0

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

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.
