If I issue the following command from the XP to the Vista system:
\\dvp3 /user:me@mydomain.com

I receive the message:
The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed.

If I try to issue either of the two commands on the XP system to the Vista system:
net view \\192.168.10.11, or
net view \\dvp3
I receive the message:
System error 5 has occurred.

Thanks for all your suggestions. Disjoining/rejoining did it.

About two weeks ago I restored the Vista system from an Acronis backup. I think after this the
networking was messed up.

here's what I've found so far: "NET USE" is failing to find any shares,
but the folders are found when I use the backup program to set up a
backup location, and i can reach the folder thru explorer. when ever i
copy/paste the shared resource (\\computername\resourcename\) with a
space, after "NET USE", i get system error 67, the network name cannot
be found.

if i type just "NET USE" i get "there are no entries in the list"

I've been reading thru the help screen for NET USE, and can't for the
life of me figure out why the NET USE command is failing.

I just installed the hotfix for XP so i can see it on the network map in
Vista. still get the error when trying to backup to the xp folder. the
error (title of thread) pops up when i click "next" after inputting user
name and password for XP

Re: Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect

The 'target account name' refers to the name of the computer you are connecting to.

Basically, you are attempting to call the server by a name which it does not recognise.

Things to check:

Can you connect to the server by IP address? Is your computer resolving the name of the server to the correct IP?

And - something else I've seen cause this issue (albeit with a Win2003 DC) - check that the "TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper" service is running on the server.

In a nutshell - the machine had some incorrect and, apparently conflicting settings for its IP protocol. In the DNS settings, the "Append these DNS suffixes" radio was selected and two domains were listed, one being our companies domain name and the other that domain name with the internal domain name listed. (Example: mycomany.com and office.mycompany.com.)

Additionally, the "Use this connection's DNS suffix in DNS registration" box was checked.

Changing the radio button to "Append Primary and connection specific DNS suffixes" and unchecking the "Use this connection's..." box solved the problem.
