I have a dell Inspiron 9100 which is part of my home domain --- Yes, domain.  I have 5 computers in the domain all with file sharing working just fine.  On my dell, When I try to set the NTFS permissions, under the "locations" box it only shows the local computer.  It won't show my domain.  Is there a service I need to enable or something?  This is boggling me.

make sure you are only pointing to the internal DNS server!

under network connections for the dell it indicates the DNS server is the internal one.  Also, from any of the other computers in network places under my domain where all the computers can be seen, if I right click on the dell and click properties, I get an error message stating I don't have appropriate access rights.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Is your Dell a member of the Domain, or just a Workgroup computer connecting to a share?

Are you logging in as a domain user or a local one?

It might be best to disjoin the machine from the domain, reboot, reset the computer account in Active Directory, and then rejoin it.

You could also use the RunAs command and access the MMC, where you can control these properties..  but you need the proper credentials, regardless....
