We have a very small LAN here, but some peolpe here think we need Active Directory, though nobody knows how to maintain it.
I am not in the position to change this.
How can I get full access (on Linux it would be "execute" rights) also for files on network drives (the files are just on another machine next room)
My account is in the group Administrators on a windows 2003 server Domain Controller.
I cannot open simple MS Access 2000 Databases or CHM Files from network drives in the lan
How to do that? Some policy setting? I want to change that once. It is useless. We have no distinction between local or network files here. I would have to copy everything to a local drive and then do what I want.
Edit: When i doublecklick an MS Access file the following happens:
First there is a security popup from windows 2003, askig me if I really want to open this file and telling me that files from the INTERNET are dangerous.
This is strange, because it is not thge internet, it is the intranet.
I accept and then MS Access loads, and displays the program window with all the toolbars, but not the database. Then appears an application-modal message box in the center of the screen on top that says more or less:
I cannot iopen this file, it is outside the intranet. Some files on the internet are dangerous. If you want to oen it you have to copy it to the intranet.
So I have to teach the Domain that the local drives are Intranet?
