NT 4.0 to 2003 upgrade - Any NEW USER accounts require the EVERYONE GROUP

Posted on 2006-04-30
Last Modified: 2010-04-18
I created a fresh NT 4.0 BDC, took it  offline and performed an in place upgrade to 2003. Later I created 2 new 2003 Domain Controllers from scratch to operate in the same Domain. When I now set up ditectory share and file permissions with any user created after I created the new network they are seem to some how become joined with the everyone group. Unless I add this group with the user the user won't have any access at all. In addition the everyone group must be granted the same access that I want the user to have. The users that came along with the BDC from the original network don't have this requirement (normal).

    Accepted Solution

    You need to add the Anonymous Login and Everyone Groups to the "Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access Group".  It can easily be done via command line with these two entries:

    net localgroup "Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access" Everyone /add

    net localgroup "Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access" “Anonymous Logon" /add
