Domain user is denied access to folder even though they have full access permissions
Posted on 2008-11-18
A strange issue has recently occured and I cannot find a solution, so I am hoping you experts can help!
Network: Windows domain with ~80 users all on XP Pro boxes
Primary DC is also a file server and hosts a share \\server\data
within this folder departments access files via directory folders, e.g.: \\server\data\finance
recently a user tried to access their folder, which they have been able to always, and received access denied error.
when I was first asked to fix this, I repaired network connection, registered dns, reset her password and logged her in and was successful accessing the folder... so I thought ok, some network connection fluke, seems fine now.
Today it happened again and I cannot solve it.. I have confirmed that the user has full access to the folder, and the root share is open to everyone with full access. The user is a member of a group which has full permission to the folder as well.
P.S: This user can access the \\server\data folder
I logged in on their computer and can access all folders using my account name
I logged her in on my computer and access is denied to the folder still
