Setting up home directory on the network
Posted on 2004-03-25
I am in the process of setting up a new domain using Windows 2000 Server. I have successfully setup AD and DNS. I have a test client PC. I have setup a test user in AD called testing.
I created a folder on the domain called network_shares and shared it out. I then went to the properties of the user testing and went to the profile tab, within the profile tab I entered the following: \\domain.name\network_Shares\%username%
I log on to the domain using the client pc using the testing username, when I check network_shares a folder called testing appears. So far so good.
My problem comes when I try and view this folder and its contents from the domain server. I get a access denied message. I am able to right click on the testing folder go to properties, security tab and I am able to add a administrator user and then I am able to see the folder, however I have to do this for every folder within testing so I can see each one, I dont want to have to do this for every user that is added to the domain.
There must be a easier way of allowing me to see the folders from the domain server?
