Hi Experts,

I have recently switched my DC (Windows server 2000) to native mode. This server is also being used as a file server.
Now, my intetion is to move all the data to another server (to a new file server which uses Windows server 2003).
The thing is that I can assign the groups to folders on the new server but when trying to get access I get "access denied".
Moreover, when creating a new group and assigning this group to any folder, I still get an "access denied" error when trying to get access.

Can any body explain what could have happened wrong and how could I fix the problem ?

Check you share permissions for the shared folders. You may have rights via NTFS but not share.

Sorry clicked the wrong button..

There has been one fairly major change with Windows Server 2003: the default share permissions are (the group) Everyone|Read.
