Damn, I even did a clean install of Windows just to reset everything, same exact problem. Now I'm really confused....

    Well I sort of figured out what was wrong.

    Two of the machines had identical Administrator passwords (for simplicity's sake) I guess that when trying to access each other's shares they got full control because they authenticated as Administrator.

    What gets me is that "Administrator" should map to nobody, as I set up in my smbusers file. I even temporary had it so Administrator mapped to root, just to see what happened. I still get prompted for a username/password.

    I guess I want any member of the domain to access another member's shares as quietly as possible; preferably without any kind of username/password prompt.
