Cannot Access Active Directory Shares From MIT Kerberos Realm
Article ID: 325468 - View products that this article applies to.
This article was previously published under Q325468
When you try to access a share on a Microsoft Windows 2000 server in an Active Directory domain, you may receive the following error message:
\\Servername\share is not accessible.
This problem occurs when you have an account on a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Kerberos v5 realm and the Windows 2000 server is in a trust relationship with MIT Kerberos realm.
When you request a resource, such as a shared folder, you computer typically sends a request for access to the Windows 2000 Key Distribution Center (KDC) for permission. Instead, Microsoft Windows XP sends the request for access to the MIT KDC, and that generates the "Access Denied" error message.
