I have a Windows Home Server 2003 running with my shared files on it. I've recently updated my desktop computer with Windows 8 and I'm now unable to access the public shares on the WHS box. I did use a Windows Live login for the Win 8 Box. The WHS connector installed just fine, and it is collecting backups of my Win 8 box.
I noticed that there's a local user named mobyt_000 (My hotmail name is mobytoby). I attempted to create a user in the WHS admin console named mobyt_000 and although it did create it, I still can't get access to that share or any other one that isn't open to "Guest". What's also strange is I now get prompted for my WHS password everytime I log in. I can put in identical passwords for the WHS account, and my local win8 account and although it seems to satisfy that dialog (the green check appears), the very next time I dbl-click the WHS icon in the tray it again prompts me for updated creds.
I see anonymous access errors in the WHS Security logs, but have no idea what I should be seeing in there.
