I have a network with two Win2000 servers on a workgroup.
The network consists of WinXP pro and Win 2000 Pro
workstations. When I try to logon to one server everything
is fine. When I try to logon to the other server I have
probems. With some workstations it doens't ask for a
Username and password. It will let me go anywhere and do
anything. With some workstations it ask for a username and
password, which is what I want. With some of the WinXp
workstations I get the message.Logon Failure: the user has
not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.

How do I get all of my workstations to ask for a username
and password?

If a user is logged onto their computer with a logon/password that does not
exist on the server they are trying to access, then they will be prompted
for a password. If they logon with an logon/password that is in the local
users on the target server they will not be prompted for a password and get
seamless access. Mapped drives with persistent connections and XP Pro
computers with stored credentials can also alter the logon process from
normal. If a user gets the logon type failure then check the Local Security
Policy on the servers in security settings/local policies/user rights for
the access this computer from the network and deny access to this computer
from the network for proper group settings and compare the settings between
the two servers. It would also be helpful to enable auditing of logon events
on the two servers to see how users are being authenticated in the security
logs. --- Steve
