We have a network with a Windows Server 2003 DC and a Windows 2000 member server.

I want to give a local, non-administrator user on the 2000 server access to a folder on the 2003 domain controller.

When attempting to modify the security settings for this folder, I am unable to browse local users of the member server.

How can I achieve this?

You can't. To access a domain controller, you need a domain account.

Local user accounts are only good on the machine where they were created.

A domain account is required for access to folders on other servers.
