I have a non-domain network with a Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation here.
All shares except one work flawlessly, with the users having the correct rights. This happens from BOTH clients, one a Windows 7 and one a Windows XP machine.
Let me elaborate:
I have a share called "data" here. The share contains subfolders, these subfolders are being mapped to drives on the clients. All folders below the data folder inherit the rights from it.
These are two folders of programs which store their data in access MDBs and flat files (the company only has two users and the programs are explicitly stated as being simultaneous multi-user capable. Hell "vito" uses a MSSQL db, this folder contains additional files so w/e).
And now on to what I can access:
O: (\\mbssv01\data\omniwin) -> works flawlessly I: (\\mbssv01\data\various) -> works flawlessly V: (\\mbssv01\data\vito) -> ACCESS DENIED when trying to change ANYTHING (You need to receive permissions from mbssv01\Administrator) \\mbssv01\data\omniwin -> works flawlessly \\mbssv01\data\various -> works flawlessly \\mbssv01\data\vito -> works flawlessly \\mbssv01\data -> works flawlessly
What. The. Heck.
I tried to reset all permissions to the vito folder, up to the point of giving EVERYONE full access to the data folder (the vito folder and ALL other folders INHERIT the rights from the data folder).
I tried mapping the drive to the IP of the server, does not work (direct access does though).
