We currently have a problem on our cluster server machines. It's a compaq CL380 machine installed with Windows 2000 Advanced server. Cluster services (Active/passive) installed. Latest Hotfix/sp level.
We have 3 such machines. 2 of them are used as homedrive for users. (*\Homedrives\%username%). I'll call these server A and B.
After an automatic reboot last sunday we had the problem that on the quorum drive on server A all %username% and %username%\*.* folders ALL NTFS right were GONE! (After Reboot).
Only Administrator and System were mentioned on the security tab, but NO rights assigned (all boxes empty). On the advanced tab "Administrator" and "system" had full control.
I wrote a batchfile to automate Rights assignment for system, administrator and user (xcacls) to the specific folders. This worked. So problem solved we thought.
TODAY the same thing happened to server B. Again after a reboot. ALL NTFS rights GONE. Again on the homedrives folder. Exact same symptom as on server A.
As we want to prevent this problem from re-occuring WHAT could be the problem here????? I have absolutely NO idea.....
