I had previously created boot disks to map a network drive. I used the Ghost boot wizard, the drivers for Intel Pro 1000 and PC Dos, and was able to successfully attach to the network. It's using TCP/IP and letting DHCP assign the address. Our server was just upgraded to 2003 (from 2000), and now I cannot logon using the same boot disk. I am getting Net Error 5: access denied as my error message. I have verified that I can logon at a Windows 2000 workstation, and connect to the network and the specific drive and subfolder using the same name/password that I am trying to use with the booth disk. So, it doesn't appear to be a rights issue in that regard. Any suggestions?

I am having the exact same problem.

I have been using network boot disks for a couple of years now.

What i used to do on the 2000 server was to copy the Ghost .exe, the mouse.com and the mouse.ini to a share on the server, and then place the images in the share. I then used to make a ghost boot disk and by editing Autoexec.bat i could use the "Net Use" to map a drive to the share and automate Ghost.exe.

This used to work well with 2000 server, but since 2003 i have had no luck

I have created an account with full rights to the share, but i the connection fails. It seems to authenticate my account and password , then asks for a domain password??

"Please eneter your password for the domain DOMAIN"

The account i use is a member of the domain with Domain admin rights. I have also tried the Administrator account, but i am starting to believe it something a bit deeper than a rights issue.

I cant use the "Net Use" command from DOS manually to any share on the domaineither. I get a Error 5 access is denied??

Please can anyone help??

Ghost a machine to a WinXP/2000 PC, that is joined to a Windows 2003 Domain. I am using Ghost 2003 and it is installed on the machines that I am backing up.

On the WinXP/2000 machine that will receive the Ghost Image:
- Share a Directory
- Under Permissions, remove EVERYONE, add LOCALMACHINE\ADMINISTRATOR and provide RIGHTS

A SHARE has to be created for each machine being backed-up, as the client machine needs to mapped to a root directory.

On the Client machine that will be backed up:
- Map a Drive
-- Start Run: \\MACHINE (Machine Name of machine that will receive the Ghost Image)
-- Right-Click on Shared Directory and select MAP DRIVE
-- Path should read \\MACHINE\SHARE
-- Click "login as another user"
-- PW = Administrator Password of target machine

Launch Ghost Wizard
- Select Ghost Basic
- Location of Image is X:(mapped drive)\FILENAME.GHO
- Click on the ADVANCED BUTTON
-- Login = administrator
-- Domain = MACHINE (Machine Name of machine that will receive the Ghost Image, NOT DOMAIN)

Select other options if desired and complete the Wizard and let Ghost run.

Note: I assume that a different user, other then ADMINISTRATOR could also be used, but I haven't tried it.

Good Luck
