Our OS is Windows Server 2008 R2. We are running a backup server on
SERVER1. It runs as a service. We need it to access network shares on two other local machines (
SERVER2 which is Windows Server 2003 and
SERVER3 which is Server 2008) which are NOT on the same domain.
All three servers have a common username and password in order to grant share access. The service then runs using that shared username and password. We are encountering the following issues:
- There seems to be times when the network connection to
SERVER2just drops or cannot connect. This might be due to a faulty enclosure on
SERVER2, but we get these errors even when local access on
- We are having trouble getting the service to access
SERVER3at all. Maybe it's a minor config issue? We just started working on that problem.
Are we doing this correctly? Could one of the servers being Windows Server 2003 be part of the problem?
