Hi, i have a single domain controller running srv 2003 std and a 2nd file
server.
I have created a DFS root from an existing share (\\server1\share1), i have
then added a DFS link pointing to another server (\\server2\photos).
This share on the other server has everyone full access for test and also
now explicitly added domain users and specified groups with full access.
Most users cant access the DFS link folder from the DFS root share which is
already mapped via login script.
My user account and the admin user can access the link but another admin
with same memberships cant!
All users can access the link via its share when bypassing the DFS root
(example, \\server2\photos).
Any ideas?
Thanks
Jai

I notice that you have not mentioned the security set at NTFS level for the two servers and also not the security set at the DFS level.  Have a look, you may have a security conflict at these levels.
