  • SBS11: c$ works in win7 but not in xp

    Hi,

    I just setup a new domain with 6 old machines and 2 new. Now I need to copy some stuff from the old profiles to the server, but I cant access C$ in the old machines. In the 2 new win7 machines I can access the C$, but dont help me since no old profiles there .

    The error I normally get is 0x80004005 or in one of the machines ask me for a username and password and give me always logon failure.

    How can I solve that?

    This is not an SBS specific question, but since we cover everything in SBS I'll respond anyway
    There is no reason that you cannot access C$ in XP unless you have changed a policy to block the admin shares at some point. I can suggest that you install a virtual XP/W7 machine and use FAST (File And Settings Transfer Wizard) from XP or WET (Windows Easy Transfer) in W7 to transfer the profiles you need to the virtual machine and from there to the server.
    TIA

      Thank you for your answer I'll do it.

      But I install the sbs with the default settings, so something is wrong there. I dont want to leave this like this and when I need it will take time till the problem is solved.

      Any idea what could be the problem?

        Not sure what could have caused this, but you could start by using GPRESULT from the command line to see what the resultant set of policies give you for an affected XP computer.

          It could be as simple as domain admins not being local admins on the clients -- I can't remember if there is a standard policy which sets this, but worth creating a GPO explicitly to do so

            Using http://connect makes the users you specify local admins

              Yes, but was it run?
