I've set up a WDS 2003 server for OS installation. (2003 because we need XP support) I also want to use this server to store Acronis images of already installed PCs. The newly installed PCs would be cloned and the images would be stored on this server for later. This server is the DC as well, no other DCs are connected to the network, the only purpose of this server is image deployment and storage in an isolated environment.
My issue is that I can't enable anonymous access to the DC. When I try to save the image from the PC to the server it always prompts me for credentials. I have to type in "anonymous". I'd like to find the way to avoid this prompt as many technicians will use the server. I've read through several posts, plus I've done everything I've seen in this post as well, but still no success!
Also, the newly installed computers do not join the domain, they join the workgroup "WORKGROUP". From these computers I'm unable to browse the shares on the domain. I have to type in the full UNC path, than I'm prompted for credentials and only than I'm able to brows the server.
Does anyone know how to overcome these issues? Thank you!
