File System Security in Win2k/Win NT 4 environent
Posted on 2001-06-22
My question has to do with file/folder security. I notice that if i grant rights on a win2k server from a winnt 4 domain, and i grant specific rights to a user: i.e.
that user doesn't have rights on the folder at all, i still get prompted for the username, or i get an access denied error even though i've granted rigts to a user or group.
i can only get rights to the folder if i add that user as a local user and grant him/her rights to the folder.
shouldn't this user have rights based on the group ? why do i have to create a user. this used to work in winNt 4 all the time. what do i need to do to grant just the group rights ?
