    ---Solution---

     

    In order to connect as a local account to the SnapServer, there should be a local account created on the SnapServer. Note the account created on the SnapServer should not match the name of an account on the domain if the SnapServer is configured to use accounts externally.

     

    Windows 9X/NT/ME/2000/XP clients normally authenticate with the same user name and password used to logon to the workstation. So the account created on the server should match the workstation's logon account and password or vice versa.

     

    Windows NT/2000/XP clients are capable of specifying a different user name and password from the account used to logon when mapping a drive to the server. To confirm the client connects as a local user, click on the Active Users link after logging into the web administration tool.
