Ok, I run active directory here at my house. I made 3 ou's . ryans room, matts room, and wireless. Each ou has 2 sub ou's titled COMPUTERS and USERS. Which of course includes the respective computer(s) and user name(s)
Picture here http://mvpbaseball.cc/ad.jpg
I have a share on my domain controller I want to share. It's a folder called SONGS.
So I went into my domain controller and created a security group called SONGS. I put it in an OU titled "SECURITY GROUPS"
I then made every domain account a member of this group
I went to the shared folder and added the group "SONGS" via the security tab. The group "SONGS" has read access under the SHARED tab.
1st problem. When I type in \\domain_controller_name to access the shares initially,,
it prompts for credentials. It does not accept any domain users credentials. Only domain admins. This does not make sense to me, as the user I'm logged in as is a valid domain user.
2nd problem: I get by this problem by putting domain admin credentials in. But then, I cannot access the SONGS folder. Even though the permissions are properly set.
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
