I can ping the server name, but can't get at the shares or see the server in My network places

Yesterday I had the AD working with roaming profiles.  Today I logon and find that I can access any of the network shares.  I removed roaming profiles, removed the computer from the domain, readded the computer.  Logged on locally with a user, GP applied, but still no access to the shares.  If I use run \\servername\users, or \\servername\netlogon - access denied.  I added the user to the domain admin group - logoff, logon - access denied.  
I can ping the server by server name and IP.

access denied usually indicated a permissions issue. Either the share itself have the permissions wrong, or the NTFS permissions are wrong.

Everyone has access to the shares with full control, Domain Users also have full control.

These settings are a result of my troubleshooting.

Where would I set permissions for the logon script in the netlogon folder?

debuggerauCommented:
you would set logon scripts in the SYSVOL Folder (normally under the windows folder).

Can you connect to the shares on the server using your credentials?

Are you looking at both the share and NTFS permissions?  Keep in mind these are two differnt locations and setting permissions in one spot doesn't mean it's set in the other.

For share perms, right click the root folder, go to properties, then click on the Sharing tab, and there's a permissions button.  Set the appropriate permissions here.  Next go to the security tab and set the NTFS permissions.

I'm not sure what you mean by setting permissions for the logon script - you shouldn't have to modify permissions of the netlogon folder.

That is where they are.

I can connect to them using run on the server and from the workstation when logged in as admin

Do you see any unlinked AD objects in your permissions? (Examples would be the users or compuer GUID instead of the name)

on the server where the shares are present restart the computer browser service, say for example u have shares on server1 and ur trying to access it from a clinet sys1, on the server u need to restart the computer browser service and its dependent services, check it out i can work since i faced the same problem some time back

I'd think it would be more likely the server service, but since you've got admin access, cant be...

Are you SURE that there are no deny permissions in effect?
Maybe list the permissions while in as admin for us all to see...

Use ShareCheck from the resource kit...

SO it seems that the permissions I had set for sharing changed, or I didn't save them.  I have them set now and they haven't changed in 20 hours, i will check again tomorrow to confirm.
