Windows 2003 Server password requirments
Posted on 2006-03-22
I have just installed a new Windows 2003 Server. It is in a workgroup model and have all the latest updates etc. I have about 50 users on it some with passwords and some without. Everything seems to work fine until this morning (Cheesy "dun dun dun" music heard in the background)
I created a folder on a drive and created a group and added 10 users to the group. I then gave them full rights to the group and turned off the inherit flag. Then I went over and tried to logging each user in, the users with passwords set on the server got in just fine. The users without passwords set got an access denied message. If I look at their effective rights they say they have full access but they can't get in. I have seen this before and the way I got around it was just adding passwords for these users...but I don't want to do that this time...I need to be able to let them have access without passwords.
