Can't access some shared folders

Hi there

Ok here is a strange problem.

For about six month ago I migrated an existing Windows 2000 DC to a Windows 2003 SBS SP2. The 2K3 SBS is running fine and is not DC etc. Last Friday I finally turned off the old Windows 2000 standard server (the formally DC) as it not longer should be print server.

Now to the issue:
There is a share named "All" on the new win 2K3 SBS and the same share on the old win 2K STD. When I turned off the old win 2K I could not access the file share "All" on the 2K3 SBS (star01) anymore :( when I try to open share \\star01\all I get the following error message: please see the attached file.

When I turn on the old win 2K (star04) again, the "All" share on star01 works again :\. Also if I open share by domain: \\star-rejser.dk I can't open many other shares that has the same name as shares on the old star04. So is there still some reference to the old star04 DC or? What can I dom from here?

Thanks

My opinion is the permission/CALs has been corrupted when you copy the data. I would suggest resetting the permissions on the new server - e.g. reassigning permissions (or start from scratch :))

I wouldn't recommend having the same share names within a network anyway. I have experience things did gone mad between different folders on different servers with same shared name.

Ok, but now the old server is turned off so that should not be a problem. But still I think its strange that I can't access the folder.

Did you migrate your W2K domain to SBS or you simply create one from scratch?

If giving it a new share name work then why not doing this? You can easily remap network drive on client computers using a logon script.

Yes I have allready done that. But I was afraid that something was wrong with the domain after the migration. But I guess not or?

You can tell from this situation whether if something gone wrong.
I am sure you gone through some tests after the migration and the easiest thing to go wrongis DNS.

Is there some official test tools made by MS there can test if migration completed successfully?

Not oon top of my head but I am not saying there isn't any. :( I guess if things are running well then it is a good indication the migration was successful.
