# Can only get access to certain shares when everyone permission is set.

Hi Experts...
This just started yesterday.  I'm the domain admin on our Windows 2000 domain.  The server these shares are on is running Server 2003 sp2.
Here's what is going on:
When i try to access shares on our file server's D: drive i get access denied, even though i'm part of the group that has full permission to that share.
Accessing the administrative share D$works fine, as does folders on the root of the d: drive that aren't shared, as well as shares on the same server under the c: drive. The share permissions on the problem shares are Everyone full and NTFS permissions are domain admins group full control, which is the one I'm a member of. If i give the everyone group NTFS permissions, then i'm able to access the shares. No one else seems to be having an issue, it's only with my domain account. I've rebooted the server, my computer, and both domain controllers. I've tried removing a share and then adding it back. I've tried resetting the NTFS permissions on a share by selecting the "Replacing permission entries on all child objects...." check box and allowing that to propagate. I'm trying to avoid having to recreate my domain user account, anyone seen this before? Advice is appreciated... Asked: ###### Who is Participating? Commented: Try this: 1. Log into your computer as another domain admin 2. Move all your My docs, etc. from your profile to another location on the PC (backup) 3. Delete your domain profile from your PC 4. Log out 5. Log in as you (should create a new Profile) 6. Try to get to the share again 7. Move back your backed up files 0 Commented: For share permissions, put Everyone Full Control and Domain Admins - Full Control. That should take care of it. 0 Author Commented: Hi TheCleaner, thanks for the post. I tried your suggestion, but i'm still getting the access denied error. I'm in the domain admins group. Any others? 0 Commented: Have you checked under NTFS settings, advanced, Effective Permissions? put your username in there and see what options it checks for you. That'd be my next suggestion. Also, really make sure you are in the Domain Admins group that you are putting it in as a part of, and make sure there isn't any kind of Deny rights set. 0 Author Commented: I put my username in and it came up with full rights, and checked the deny rights, there are none set. I'm def in the domain admins group. Thanks for the suggestions. This one is really stumping me. Any others? Here's a screenshot of one of the troublesome shares to confirm my permissions tests. permissions.bmp 0 Author Commented: Anyone got ideas on this one? I'm going to start recreating a domain account, but if someone can help me resolve this I'll dish the points out just as props... 0 Commented: With the NTFS permissions correct, as you've shown, the last thing to really check since you can get to the D$ admin share is that the share permissions are incorrect or corrupt on the share you are trying to access.

Try doing a NET USE command from the command prompt and see if you get access that way or what error code is returned.

When i do a Net Use y: \\servername\it  the command completes successfully and a drive is mapped, but when i try to access that drive via command line or my computer, it won't let me.
Does that provide any more clues?

I'm lost at this point.  Try creating another new domain admin test account and see if that works.  If it does, then something isn't right with your account.  You could try removing it from the Domain Admins group and the Domain users group, etc. and then wait 15 minutes and add it back one group at a time until it works.

Wow, thats weird.
I logged into a different pc with my account and I'm able to access the shares no problem.
So this looks like it's a local issue, probably with a program installed or the pc itself.
I did manually uninstall an app this week because it wouldnt remove via add remove programs...but i didn't think that would have caused this issue...

Thanks for the input.  But i couldn't copy my profile anywhere else, it kept giving me errors and so when i logged into the same pc it kept using the funky profile.
I ended up moving to another pc.

While I have no objection to refunding your points, you should be careful about posting "but if someone can help me resolve this I'll dish the points out just as props...".  While I'm here at this point as a helpful voice, other experts on here depend on earning points to ask new questions with.  So just be careful in the future about how you word things.

My bad on that...and actually i think it bit me in the a**, because the issue started occuring again from the different pc.
I'm going to create a new domain account as that is all i can think of.
Thanks for your time spent on this issue though.
