FTP on a Domain Controler

Windows 2000 server
Domain Controler
I'm trying to set up FTP.  I've created a user but can't seem to log in.  At one point the password was temp and it worked.  I reset the password and now I can't log in.  The FTP login just blinks.  Also, after resetting the password there was a time when I could log in with temp even though that wasn't the reset password.  If I add the user to the Administrators group I can get in with the proper password.

You can change the local policy but you will find that the effective policy on a DC is the domain controller policy which overrides local policy,  therefore for a dc you enter the change in the domain controller policy.

Whah, when you go into the local security policy you will see the entry for Logon locally.  when you open it and find the group or user you defined and added I imagine you will see a tick in the left hand (local) column and greyed out blank in the right hand column "effective policy".  if so try entering in domain controller policy instead and try again.  You may need to do secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy to pick it up if you don't want to wait for refresh.

If sounds like the NTFS permissions need to be set on the default FTP root folder to allow the user that you created access.  At least a minimum of read rights are required to login.

I added the user to the security tab of the root FTP folder.  Still same problem.  Another issue may be that I've change the default FTP path.  It is no longer ...\inetpub\ftproot\...

I feel like the problem is due to the server being the Domain Controler.  Thoughts?

Domain controller policy is slightly different... it is a different policy that all the DC's in the Domain Controller's OU get by default.   On a DC logon locally right is for Admins and Server Operators only
