OK this is an odd problem that I am not sure how to fix. Here is the
scenario. In our financial office, we have a machine that shares data
to all the users in that department. we log in to one main domain,
and their domain logins have been given full control to that share
(under the permissions and security tab). Recently pushed out SP2 to
all of them including the machine that houses the share. Now for some
reason, as opposed to using the domain logins for authentication, it
is trying to force all of them to login as guest to get to that share
- which of course I have disabled for security purposes. If I enable
guest and give it a password, it will work through that. But I really
dont want to leave the guest account enabled, and it should work fine
with their domain logins. Here is the error I am receiving in the
security portion of event viewer:


Event ID 529
Logon Failure:
Reason: Unknown user name or bad password
User Name: Guest
Domain: computername
Logon Type: 3
Logon Process: NtLmSsp

Now why is it trying to use the computer's name as the domain, as
opposed to the main domain that we all log in to? This computer logs
in to the domain as well....

Any ideas? Please, someone out there must be able to help me!

where you turn it off...still won't work...
