  • Cannot access W2K and XP machines

    I am unable to access all computers on the network. The NT machines on the network I can access through Hyena just fine. But the new computers on the network I cannot access with Hyena - W2K and XP machines.

    What setting do I need to change on the W2K and XP machines so that I can access them with Hyena.

    Do you get any errors when you try to access them? If so, what are they?

      Error message is "Unable to retrieve user list from \\rodney. Access is denied."

      When I click on a computer it gives me all the choices. Then when I click on an option like "users" I get the message above.

        Are these computers members of the domain ? And assuming that you are logged onto a domain admin account or using a domain admin account on a "Run As" option, does this account belong to the Domain Admins group and is this group part of the local Administrators group for one of these computers ?

          The network is setup as a workgroup. I have administrative privilages on all computers (same username and password). I can access the other computers through windows explorer, do whatever I want to the harddrives and data. I am unable to get Hyena to access information on the XP computers. I downloaded and installed the Windows Administritive package and was able to access the W2K machines with Hyena.

            See if this works:
            http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;q290403

            Try setting the ForceGuest=0 trick.

            You can also try:

            Admin Tools
            Local Security Settings
            Local Policies
            Security Options

            There are several settings under Network Access options that control remote administration.

            I wish Microsoft made this easier.

            Please post anything that you learn.
