I've got one Domain Controller for our small network (~20 users). It's running Win Server 2k3.
I have added a Global Security Group (
MYDOMAIN\GroupA) and added 3 users to it (
I have a separate computer running Windows Server 2k3 that's named fileserver (you guessed it, it just has file shares on it). It's joined to the domain.
I have a share:
I have set it up to be shared with Share Permissions: "Everyone / Full Control"
Then the NTFS permissions only permit
MYDOMAIN\GroupA to have Full Control over it.
However, I'm experiencing very strange problems.
I have 3 workstations (2 XP and one Vista) that are joined to the domain and UserA, UserB, and UserC are all logged in to MYDOMAIN.
UserA who is running XP can run
\\fileserver\ShareOne and access the files fine.
UserB (on XP) and UserC (on Vista) however type in
\\fileserver\ShareOne into Explorer, hit enter and are greeted with a friendly "Access Denied" error.
I even had UserB (whos on XP) restart their entire machine, relogin and they still cannot access the share.
Why would this be happening? Something very very strange is happening.
