Terminal server user rights/policy

I have an important folder in my terminal server and I grant "Change" prmission to users. When users try to access the folder, the file menu is not there. They cannot write to the folder and perform some tasks.

How do I grant access to normal terminal server users to have access to folders/files eg. cut, copy, paste, create new docs, .... via Terminal Server Clients.

I tried to set a policy by removing some restrictions like 'hide file menu from explorer', and also modify the User Rights by logon locally, and some other settings, but still unsuccessful.

Any idea is really appreciated. This is kinda urgent as users do not want to access via mapped drives.

thanks.

There are many times that removing policies does not give the opposite effect. You actually need to enforce the policy with the opposite selected, not just remove the policy entirely.

I hope this helps

Hi jmiller,

Thanks for the advice. I managed to get it works by modifying the policy. It takes a while to take effect, eventhough the policy has been replicated to all BDCs.

I am glad you got it working!

Can you let me know why you chose a C grade here? If this is what you intended then no problem at all, it is your choice. However, the grade you give directly affects the points given to experts. Many people are unaware of the special grading curve here as it is different than normal grading curves. I listed the curve below.

Again, if this is the grade you think is deserved, that is you choice. Glad I could help!

How Do I Know What Grade to Give?
Although we use an A-D scale here at Experts Exchange, it works differently than, say, school grades. If one or more Experts' proposals are accepted as answers, they should usually be given an A or B grade, since they have taken the time to provide you with a working solution. If a possible solution is incomplete - ask for clarification or details before accepting the answer and grading it. People should not be given lower grades because of incorrect grammar or because you just accepted their answer or comment to close the question. Keep in mind, your question and any follow-up comments should be focused so that there can be a specific answer. The following is a good guideline to follow when grading:

A: The Expert(s) either provided you with a thorough answer or they provided you with a link to information that thoroughly answered your question. An "A" can also be given to any answer that you found informative or enlightening beyond the direct question that you asked.

B: The Expert(s) provided an acceptable solution, or a link to an acceptable solution, that you were able to use, although you may have needed a bit more information to complete the task.

C: Because Experts' reliability are often judged by their grading records, many Experts would like the opportunity to clarify if you have questions about their solutions. If you have given the Expert(s) ample time to respond to your clarification posts and you have responded to each of their posts providing requested information; or if the answers, after clarification, lack finality or do not completely address the issue presented, then a "C" grade is an option. You also have the option here of just asking Community Support to delete the question.

Remember, the Expert helping you today is probably going to be helping you next time you post a question. Give them a fair chance to earn an 'Excellent!' grade and they'll provide you with some amazing support.
