So we have this server, it's a POS (literally, thats the name of the vendor that installed it) it failed many times and the replacements we tried weren't much better. The vendor finally said back up the DB and reformat it. So I did but come to find out we can't put xp sp2 on it cause they suck and don't support sp2. Since I have no copies with just sp1 I have to use 2k. So heres the problem. The server and its main clients are in their own special workgroup. They work just fine. EVERYONE else is on a domain and the domain users can't connect to this workgroup. This wasn't an issue when we had xp on the server so I'm guessing its a 2k issue. The error is either a generic one saying the server isn't available or one saying you may not have permissions. I read something that said for a domain xp machine to connect to a workgroup 2k machine the guest account needs to be enabled. I have no idea why they think this would work but I tried it and no luck. That's all the help I could find (mainly cause I don't know what I'm looking for) but I'm open to suggestion ANY other ideas would be wonderful!
