I recently upgraded to Windows 2003 Server (standard) from 2000 Server. The upgrade went really well except now I can no longer connect to other drives within my company's domain. My server is in its own domain and is the DNS, as it was before the upgrade. The message I receive is: "The account is not authorized to log in from this station. This connection has not been restored." I've tried to re-map the drives, stop/start some likely services, ran netdiag, etc. Can you help?
This feels like a name resolution issue to me. Use nslookup, and ping to determine if you are able to access these resources by their DNS name. For file shares using the \\computername\sharename UNC notation, you should also use nbtstat to ensure that any necessary NetBIOS name resolution is taking place.
