At work, I have a Windows computer on a domain, but it's generally logged in with a shared local user account, since the administrators don't want to make shared domain accounts. The problem is I seem to be unable to access file shares (that require domain user credentials). If I navigate to
\\SERVER\SHARE, I'm prompted for my username and password, which appear to be accepted, but then a dialog box pops up with the message
\\SERVER\SHARE is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.
A few notes:
- The file share works fine if I'm logged into the computer under my domain account instead of the local user account.
- This computer was previously taken off the domain, and during that time, the file share worked fine as well (it would request my domain account credentials as usual, but then actually show the files instead of the error message).
- If I "run as different user" a Cygwin terminal under my domain credentials, I can
cd //server/shareand access files that way.
Any ideas on how I can access this file share without taking the computer off the domain?
