We counsel Customers to "scorch the earth" and start fresh, oftentimes. I have yet to see a good solution that works that doesn't involve have non-IT stakeholders involved. The best scenario I've seen yet is a Customer that has had management identify "stewards" of various data areas and delegated control of the AD groups that control access to those shared ...

Just to map a network share directory you would use this command: net use \\Server\ShareName\Directory This mapping would not be persistent and would have to be established and authenticated at user login, and you would access the share using the UNC path and not a local drive letter. If you want to access the network share through a location on your ...

You could try using the "screen" command. This will allow you to run a multiuser session which 2 users can connect and share. First you'll need to set the suid bit. screen comes with it turned off, and it is necessary for multiuser mode: sudo chmod +s /usr/bin/screen sudo chmod 755 /var/run/screen The first user connect, running screen -S shared The ...

When you added yourself to the group, did you log out of your workstation and log back in? Security Group membership is a component of the access token granted to your user ID at logon and changing group membership requires a log out and log in order to get a new access token that reflects the new membership.

Sounds like tokens aren't being issued at logon. Are you sure that there isn't a connectivity or AD issue with that machine? I suspect you're logging in with cached credentials and aren't actually authenticating against a DC from that one machine. klist.exe will show you if you have any Kerberos tickets. You should disconnect any manually mapped drives, ...

If you're sharing your system disk then all sensitive system information will be shared. If you provide write access, things could get even worse! Remote users will be able to get to the registry and at least check it's contents for possible passwords, keys and other "secret" information. If you give them write access, your whole system might be formatted by ...

I agree with Evan that starting over is a good idea. I've done 4 "file migrations" over the years at my current company, and each time we set up a new structure and copied (some) files over, backed up the old shared files and took them offline. One thing we did on our last migration might work for you. We had a somewhat similar situation with what we ...

You may be able to clear the cached credentials by using the Credential Manager in the Control Panel. Try browse into the Control Panel, enter "Credential Manager" into the search bar on the top right, then click on the "Credential Manager" result. You may find your cached credentials under the "Windows Credentials" section, if so you can click "Remove from ...

Try DFS. Here's an article I found that goes into detail.

Please reference the MS KB regarding this issues: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/870964 Basically: Make the Server service dependent on the iSCSI Initiator service. For information about how to do this, see the "Make the Server service dependent on the iSCSI Initiator service" section

This can be done by modifying the advanced security permissions of the folder and make sure that the users do not have the "Delete Subfolders and Files" and "Delete" permissions. The following rights should work: Traverse Folder/Execute File List Folder/Read Data Read Attributes Read Extended Attributes Create Files/Write Data Create Folders/Append Data ...

First things first, all security should be managed using NTFS permissions on the folder and share (Remember, these are 2 sets of permissions and are mutually exclusive) itself. To do this you'll need security groups, and there is no way round that. Not mapping somebody to a drive is not 'security'. Secondly, to MAP the drives, I'd be using Group Policy ...

There are two benefits of bittorrent: Files are distributed and therefore less likely to go away. Fast file transfer thanks to many people serving a file. In a LAN the connection is usually the limiting speed factor, not the server. The benefit of distributed files is often not needed because there is usually a reliable server. Bittorrent is quite bad ...

The obvious way to keep it private is through use of firewalls and not publishing the tracker outside of your office. Trackers themselves do need to be published, as I remember. The basic problem that BitTorrent is solving is how to get thousands of people to efficiently download at high speed from a point source on the Internet. The bottleneck in this ...

Your best bet is to put a reverse proxy in front of them if your edge device doesn't support virtual hosts.

Files deleted off network shares are permanently deleted. The warning dialog that pops up has a differently colored icon, and different text to indicate this fact. If the server takes VSS snapshots you may be able to find the file by going to the directory that held the file, right click and bring up the Properties, then looking under the Previous Versions ...

man smb.conf: guest ok (S) If this parameter is yes for a service, then no password is required to connect to the service. Privileges will be those of the guest account. I suppose there is no way to accomplish what you want to have in this way. As a workaround, I would suggest defining another share without setting guest ok = yes and let the ...

Some of these things depend on the version of SMB you're talking about. There are a number of different dialects and "flavors". There have been entire books written about SMB/CIFS-- you're talking about a fairly broad topic. The original SMB dialect, over TCP/IP, sends commands across a single TCP connection between the client and the server. There is no ...

That SID is interesting. It's used by Windows for UNIX translation, and that particular one is what stores the UNIX mode. The smbfs drivers for Apple have this in a comment too. The 33216 number translates to the Mode of the file, or should since 33216 doesn't translate to a correct POSIX mode. You can get around this by removing "Full Control" for ...

BitTorrent is great for distributing files where you don't need a big server (farm) hosting the file, as clients also become servers and as the popularity of the file grows, so does the capacity for distributing the file. This is where the brilliance of BT lies, and why it is a very good for low/no-budget operations to distribute data to a large "audience". ...

Your procedure as indicated above should work

It's just a "seriously dude, have you thought about this because it you haven't you could be doing kind of a bad thing but if you have thought about it then go ahead, be my guest" type message. Take it's advice, think it over first.

There's no built-in mechanism in any version of Windows Server to do what you're describing. The quota functionality only deals with the total size of files owned by a given user, not with the sizes of indvidual files. The "file screen" functionality in Windows Server 2003 R2 File Server Resource Manager only concerns itself with file extensions, not with ...

I manage to resolve this by adding every domain account twice into the shared folder. One without delete permissions applied to the folders and subfolders, and one with delete permissions applied only to files!

Take ownership of the folder. Remove the deny entry.

It's not Samba, it's the OS X client. Since the Samba share doesn't support Mac-style file attributes (resource fork, type&creator codes, Finder flags, extended attributes, etc), the OS X file system will split the file into the AppleDouble format, storing the data fork (regular file contents) as one file, and all of the unsupported metadata in a second ...

You will want to look at the Advanced Security Settings (detailed NTFS permissions) on the shared folder. Most likely, you'll find that your user account has the "Traverse folder / execute file" permission. Even if you don't have this permission, the default settings are to bypass this restriction entirely. For folders: The Traverse Folder permission ...
