"system error 5 has occurred" - Access is denied. Net Use


  • net use L: \\ATU1277\scans MyPassword /user:SCANS

    System error 5 has occurred.

    Access is denied.

    net view \\
    System error 5 has occurred.

    Access is denied.

    I'm trying to setup network shares on an XP Pro sp2 machine.  I had sp3 installed and removed it because an IBM program wouldn't run in sp3.

    I'm trying to share a folder called scans on an AS/400.  The AS/400 netshares is configured to share the folder with unlimited users.  The user allowed to share the folder on the AS/400 is called scans.  The user scans is created in XP Pro.

    Both computers have the same user name called scans and the same password.

    The user scans on the AS/400 is enabled.

    Both computers are set with a workgroup called Workgroup.

    In XP Pro the:

    computer browser has been restarted.

    Net Logon is not started and set to manual.

    If I go into Windows Explorer, My Network Places, Entire Network, Microsoft Windows Network, Workgroup, ATU1277

    It asks me for a user name and a password.

    If I put in user name:scans  password:MyPassword

    The username/password screen comes right back.  Over and Over again

    The firewall on the XP machine has TCP ports 137, 138, 139, 445 open.

    The firewall on the XP machine has Trusted.  This is the machine called ATU1277.

    I have "simple file sharing" un-checked.

    I have also tried net use L: \\\SCANS /user:\administrator

    with the administrator password for the XP machine.

    I have tried turning File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks off, Ok, On, Ok.

    Net Use shows no shares.

    rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr

       shows no passwords are saved.

  • You know what I hate? Years old unanswered threads :D That's the worst. I first though that link must be unrelated, but it helped fix my problem mapping XP drive from a Win 7 machine! The solution was to change Network access: Sharing and security model for local accounts from default value "User Authenticate as Guest" to "Classic: Local users authenticate as themselves."

    My questions are:

    - why the heck was this a default after a fresh Win XP OEM install?

    - can this being changed by some clicking action or some network settings wizard and not just in the group policy?

    - why does this Access denied happens even if I obviously DO NOT want to be authenticated as guest by specifying username as a parameter and typing the password then in the net use command? (I consider this to be a bug, but who cares about XP now right? :)
