Shared folders authinication
Posted on 2009-04-19
is there a way to ask for authentication when a user clicks on a shared folder.
im working in a hospital. we have given the nurses common account in the wards/ Clinics PCs.
lots of doctors & nurses use these PCs for checking their emails through OWA.
some of them have their own shared folders. and to access them , they are required to log off the common account, then log on with their accounts, check their mapped folders and then log off again and log on with the common account to allow others to use the PCs.
this floods the PCs , sometimes, with more than 30 profiles .
is there a way to re ask for authentication on the folder level.
that is , when a user logged on using a common account , and clicks on a mapped shared folder, an authentication window should pop up and if he puts the correct credentials of the folder privileged users/groups , the folder should open.
all of these folders are on windows 2003 R2 server.
hope the point is clear, thanks a lot in advance.
