Hey there, got a domain with ~25 users, folder redirection for my documents is going to a share on the root.  I have checked in the OU "grant exclusive rights to my documents".  If I am in as a user at their machinf (2000 & XP clients) I can still browse to the server and into another users folder and documents.  

I do not want other users browsing into each others my document shares.

What am I missing

each user is a domain admin and domain user

Any help is appreciated

I have tried removing the users from the domain admin, but since they need to update software and a few files on shares I had too many problems removing them from there.

Can't the users set permissions on their My Documents folders, so that only they and you can access it?  Instead of having the Admin group allowed access, have only their login name and your login name (presumably for access rights).

By practice, you should never give Domain Admin rights to normal users (even in a network of only 25 users).  In the end, you will be responsible if they can access the server's system directories and what-not... especially since they can roam the network and delete/change files by accident.

If they need to install programs or change stuff local to their computer just make them "local administrators" to the specific machine (Control Panel -> Users -> Just add their domain username and make them part of the Administrators group locally).

As far as the shares go, since you already implemented the OU policy, you can just remove them from the Domain Admins group to enforce the security settings you desire.
