AD User Permissions Problem - Very Strange
Posted on 2006-03-21
When I follow the following steps, I run into a permissions problem. Any ideas?
For this example: Domain = mydomain
Step 1: Log into a DC (we'll call server1) and create a new AD user: User logon name: newuser PW: password Member of Domain Users.
Step 2: Log into a different server in the domain (we'll call that server2)
Step 3: While on server2, I try to map a network drive to a share on server1.
- The share called sharename$ has permissions of Everyone with full control.
- Security tab has users given read&exe; List Contents; Read;
- I use this for folder when mapping: \\server1\sharename$
- I choose connect using a different username and use the following: Username: mydomain\newuser Password: password
When I select ok to make this network drive, I get another login window again. It tells me my password is bad. If I wait for a while, everything seems to work eventually. I suspected a password synchronization issue, but I reset the password on all domain controllers to the same value and tried again - still got the same error. If I waited a little while again - poof it works. Any ideas?
