Server 2003 network shares not visible

Win 2003 server domain controller running active directory. Had a issue with drive system drive ran out of space. After imaging physical drive with 2 partitions to a larger drive, issues occur when viewing server from workstations. example: server has a number of shares including root of 2nd partition and 3 folders. Only 1 folder is visible from workstations even thou all folders have the same access rights. Created a new share, gave full control to everyone, not visible either. I believe that the domain security is corrupt, Ideas on repair?

Do you have any errors in the Server's Error Logs - Specifically the System, Active Directory, or the File Replication Event logs?  If the server system volume ran out of space, it might have cause problems in Active Directory which might be a contributory factor.  

You can also run chkdsk on the problem volume to check for errors.  It is entirely possible that the security info got scrambled in the imaging process.

Let us know.

Cyber Threats to Small Businesses (Part 1)

This past May, Webroot surveyed more than 600 IT decision-makers at medium-sized companies to see how these small businesses perceived new threats facing their organizations.  Read what Webroot CISO, Gary Hayslip, has to say about the survey in part 1 of this 2-part blog series.

also try running dcdiag to show up any errors and fix accordingly.

thanks for input guys, computer browser was not an issue, can see 1 shared folder. Tcp stack not an issue either, no problem access network resources except on server. Server event log shows issues issues with replication on C driver, issue with sysvol. Was able to get the shares working temporarly by giving all users full control to the root of the data drive. Ran chkdsk, did not resolve the issue, so it looks like AD is messed. Other than restoring system state from backup is there any way to repair AD.

What errors are you getting in the Event logs.  Those would help identify the next steps.  My guess it is something about a Journal Wrap Error.  It should give you the directions needed to try to recover from the error in the event.  If not, post it and we will see what we can do.

run dcdiag /repairmachineaccount
Then run DCDIAG and NETDIAG and start working on the individual errors. Google the error and see if you can fix their individual causes.

Cheers
