Legacy software is unable to access file on server

Hi all,
Legacy software is unable to access file on server but the users have full access permissions and can access the files on the server from Windows Explorer on the client pc. This only effect some 2000/NT4 machines but not others.

Any suggestions? Could this possible be Group Policy related?

Just to add, when the Domain Admin logs into any of the effected machines the Legacy Application runs fine. This may not be Group policy related as the users effected or not are all part of the same group in AD(this was just suggested as a possible cause).

Hi Texal,

Texal, server 2003 really locks down default permissions. My first guess would be that what ever user these applications are running as do no have the needed permissions needed. This is even more evident if they run ok when a domain admin runs them.

God Bless

Legcy softwares relies on NetBIOS names and they do not use DNS Names or FQDN names. You can use WINS or Lmhosts file to resolve a NetBIOS names to IP Address.
