Shared Folders requires users to be added as Admins.
Posted on 2003-10-30
I have created a shared folder on a Win2000Pro machine, and granted Full Access to certain users on the Domain on which this workstation resides. However, even though those users have been given access to this folder, I find that they cannot access it unless I first add them as Administrators of this machine. Adding them as anything other than Admins does not work, they get an "insufficient priviledges" error message. This makes no sense. What's the point of having shared folder permissions when users have to be fully priviledged Admins anyway?
