How can I solve a problem with sharing on windows 2003 server?

I have one folder shared in windows server 2003. All clients couldn't access this folder. All settings about permissions (total control) and users are allowing to "Everybody" access, however nobody could access this folder, including the domain administrator. Always a username and password were asked, but any data login is refused. I ever tried unshare and share again. Ever tried access logged in own server (using: \\server\sharedfoldername) and no access permited.

Assuming that all servers, clients are in a single domain...

Make sure that given permission are given also in Security window
 Right click shared folder> Properties > security
if security not there, then go tools > folder options >view > uncheck Use simple file sharing

If all are ok,

Then check this

When you trying login make sure your entering user name in this pattern
DomainName\Username

also.... Creat a new folder and give all permissions. Do not enter the Security tab... test this folder from users in the domain with a test file of some kind. if it works, then move the files from, the folder that doesn't alow access and delete the old folder. Then rename the new folder as desired. Permission settings can become corrupt and then are difficult to repair. Just create a new folder!

If the folder permissions are OK then it could be the share permissions. Right-click on the folder, select "Sharing and Security" then "Sharing", click on the "Permissions" tab and see how those are set.

I ever did all these things, but nothing works. I create a new folder, set his sharing setings, everything like it must be, but always the windows with a message "logon to server <servername>. Enter username and password" appear. But any user can't access. Can somebody else help me??

ah! I forgot to tell... I have tried to share folders with Mac machines on this domain, but now this service is disable (share files for mac).

Lets step back for a minute..  This is a Domain with all computers added / joined to the Domain, and all Users are authenticated members, correct?   (That logon message will appear if you have a non-authenticated user trying to access, or a non-domain computer).

Just want to make sure we are all on the same page..

I'm going to explain detailly.

Everything like normal: the server is with domain settings ok, all computers are part from domain, all users are authenticated, but when any user (including the administrator) try access any shared folder on server, the logon window appear and neither the administrator user and password can logon.

The server's shared folders are with permission set  to allow any user access (everybody with full control) the folder's content. The windows firewall is disable too.

I discovered recently that I can't access the GPMC (access denied). I don't know if this is relationed with the problem.

Thanks your attention.

Well, something is surely messed up here..  :)

Is the File and Printer Sharing is enabled (checked) in the NIC Properties window?
Have you ever been able to share any data off this Server?
Either there is a vital service turned off, or it sounds like your installation might be hosed.   I may sound cavalier about reinstalling, but since I seem to do it all the time, it may be the only way out of this mess..

I've reinstalled the OS fully, but the same problem is happening yet. The windows that ask name and password continues appering...and the administrator's data logon don't work.

I just remove all clients from domain and add them again, then the problem was solved. Thank everybody! It was necessary to remove computers from DHCP Manager on server.
