I've got a sinking feeling ...  We moved to a new server. Old one using Windows 2000 server to new one using Windows 2003 server (R2). Not understanding the issue with cals and how they would impact my environment (and at the recommendation of my IT consultant), I purchased the version with only 5 cals (budet choice).  I am now having issues with the shares on that sever.  I can read from it, but can not write to it.  Access is denied.  Even changing security levels does not seem to help.  I am not very familiar with this version of OS.  Would you agree that the cals are getting in my way?

No, I would not agree the CALs are getting in your way.  Check your share permissions - by default they are READ ONLY in 2003.  The most restrictive permissions (NTFS + Share) is what will apply, so if NTFS is FULL control, but Share is read only, you get read only.

Forgive my ignorance.. But my head is about to explode and I'm going on vacation.  What's the short way to chance this setting?

Go to the shared folder, right click it, go to the sharing tab, click the permissions button, change.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Are you sure?  Are you sure you didn't go to the PERMISSIONS Tab and change permissions (NTFS permissions?)  I said the SHARE tab.

Ok, what are the NTFS Permissions set to and what are the SHARE permissions set to?
