Hi, I have a slight problem with my active directory network.
When a Domain Admin logs in they can do: \\<computer name> and view any shares.
however when a Domain User does the same, the error message 'access to the resource: <computer name> has been denied'
the admins can do: \\compname \\IPofcomp \\compname\share and \\IPofcomp\share
but users cannot do any of those.
the default admin share (C$) is accessable to admins, but again users cannot connect to it.
we have a fileserver called 'fileserver'
the logon scripts work fine for all users (the shares appear and are accessable), now while the users cannot type: \\fileserver\share in explorer, they can make more shares and view shares in computers using the comand prompt (ie. net use \\fileserver\share and net view /NETWORK: \\filserver).
I have checked the 'security' and 'share' permissions to make sure everyone has read permissions under both
there isnt a security group that I can find (DaGo21's answer to my previous question (link below)).
some of the solutions I have tried are:
> Changing permissions in the group policies (which badly screwed up the network so I had to create a new PDC).
> Creating shared folder with 'everyone' having permission to read and then trying to get a user to view.
> my previous question: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Q_21355815.html
> I have tried adding users to 'access this computer from network' as suggested by this link: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb%3Ben-us%3B823659
NOTE: the PDC is running windows 2003 standard edition
and these have not worked.
Thanks for your help
