NTFS groups fault on 2003? Domain local groups. Global groups
Posted on 2004-10-08
I have robocopied all the file share from a Win 2000 DC onto a member 2003 server in the same domain.
Users report no access to some folders. I check the folders and see nothing wrong with the NTFS groups. I then check to readd the group onto the NTFS through AD advanced search option, the group is not coming up in the search list.
I create a new local group and it still does not turn up in advanced search list.
I create a global group and it comes up in advanced search.
2000 mixed mode I thought is not supposed to have effect on the local groups.
The strange thing is some local groups are working and some are not.
I dont want to recreate all the groups into global, take me all day.
We dont intend to be moving up from 2000 mixed mode for a while. I need the local groups working now
