On an windows domain file server permissions and security properties on shared folders do not resolve groups or some user names from the active directory. Only the network 'identifier' is shown. Can anyone tell me what is going on - it seems the share is not able to resolve the permissions or security in the active directory?

There are two main possibilities for that happening:
- The DNS settings are incorrect, so the server can't find its DC. In short: use *only* internal DNS servers that are authoritative for your AD domain on *all* domain members, and forward external request from your DNS servers. Check the links below for details.
- The user/group that had permissions assigned has been deleted.
