Today i had a problem logging in to a netapp share with a computer who is not a member of the domain. for the first time i have installed a netapp storage box with a windows 2008 domaincontroller for authentication.
Usally when the login box shows up, i try to login on like this:
somehow did did’nt work. I reconfigured the netapp to autenthicate, but no solution.
I used a windows xp workstation. When i try to logon from a Vista client it did work.
Now i was confused. Eventually i found a way to login using the User principal names
Ofcourse this has something to do the way authenciation is working between Vista clients, XP clients and a windows 2008 domain controller. However it frustrated me for about 1 our.
