question on basic use of win2k-svr, domain browse and folder permission problems
Posted on 2004-08-18
We are having some problems with folder permissions being 'read-only' for clients.
Our setup: Win2k-svr with five clients. DSL router, and Linksys running DCHCP. The DNS is on the server. All security is updated. I put the computer names in active directory in order to have a visual reference. I put the user names and everything in active directory also. We don't have a web site or anything like that. The firewall appears okay.
We had a problem recently where we had to re-install windows on the PDC, but kept the folders and files.
I'm not that experienced with network admin, having last done this about 5 years ago on NT. We could turn it over to a pro, but it's a mess right now (I'm a programmer).
Does this set-up/problem look familiar? Any suggestions as to how I can get file permissions back to normal? The folks in the office are getting frustrated because the permissions always appear to 'go back to read-only', even if revised.
I thought we had a pretty simple, basic, setup, but am now starting to wonder :)
