Users cannot share directories!

Normal domain users on NT4.0-Wkst cannot share directories!!
The administrator can though! Even if they have full-
rights on the directory and own it, the "Share"-item does
never show up in the property dialog for them.

It is not a problem with services or so, as the
administrator-account can share whatever he wants ......
are there any special rights that a user has to have on
a drive so he can share his directories, which reside there?

Hi Os,

Regarding your question.

This is by design. The least rights a user must have to create shares is being member of the Power Users group.

Good luck,
