I am following the book Penetration Testing: A Hands-On Introduction to Hacking from Georgia Weidman. In Ch 13, page 296 the psexec from metasploit is used against a Windows XP Profession SP3 (32-bit), but I got the following error:
Exploit failed [no-access]: Rex::Proto::SMB::Exceptions::LoginError Login Failed: The server responded with error: STATUS_LOGON_TYPE_FAILURE (Command=115 WordCount=0)
I have also set the windows xp machine to behave like part of a domain: Start --> Run.. --> secpool.msc --> Security Settings --> Local Policies --> Network access: Sharing and security model for local accounts --> Classic - Local Users authenticate as themselves.
and set it up the SMBDomain to WORKGROUP. When using enum4linux, my user (shariff) is not enumerated, but this is the one that I use to login (I also have the hash for it but again not working). Does this suggest that there is some setting that is not allowing me to connect??
This is driving me crazy.. any suggestions or ideas to fix this? username and password is correct, but still login failure error. Is there anything that I am missing?? How I can test smb to see if I can login with my user??
