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.

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.
