    Default Problems browsing from workgroup to domain

    Hello i have the next setup
    31 computers networked with windows xp that are in a
    windows workgroup ej called:group
    34 computers networked members of a windows server 2003
    domain ej called:domain
    I have the next situation (it's not nesesary a problem but
    i don't now why)

    first
    When i'am using a computer member of the workgroup "group"
    and i go to the network browser and move to the "domain" i
    have the next situations.

    1 I enter to some machines and i browse the shares
    flawless, enter the folders that have permission to
    "everyone" ok.

    2 I enter to other machines and i get asked for a domain
    user and pass

    3 I enter to other machines and i get kicked with a "pop
    up" that say, "you don't have access to this network
    resource"

    The question is the next, why this happend? all the
    computers are configured equally and have the same
    permissions.
    I think that the normal behaivior must be 2 "get asked for
    domain user and pass".

    After some investigation i have see that the computers that
    have the guest acount activated are the ones that reject
    when i connect to them " 3 " the solution is deactivate de
    local guest acount and then they started to ask for a user
    pass like "2".

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    But i don't now why some computers get to "2" get asked by
    user and pass and some others get "1" "enter the computer
    and see the shares"
    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Is hard to search for someting like this in the Microsoft
    Knowledge base.

    Just out of curiosity, why do you have a workgroup and a domain? And why
    such a huge workgroup? That sounds very difficult to support.

    Disable guest, and disable simple file sharing on all the workgroup
    computers.
