Permissions on a W2K server
Posted on 2004-09-03
We have a Win2K server that has mactinosh file shares. We have a share setup called Hand-In and this share is used for students to connect and hand-in assignments. Because we have many students attaching to this share we want to be able to have students write to the folder but not be able to read anything. We have the share set so that students have r/w rights and security setup for list folder and write. We have the same thing setup for PC shares and this works like a champ. The problem comes when a macintosh workstation connects up. We connect using smb://servername and then use the students AD login name and password. They then click on the share Hand-In. When they try to write a file up to the server they will get an error message stating that they do not have sufficient priviliges. We have tried special priviligies to allow this but it will not work until we give them the read right. However, we cannot do this because they then can read all other documents up there. I have seen many links on this issue but have never seen a resolution. We are desparate as we do not want to setup a Macintosh file server and recreate all of our student accounts.
