Hello, surprisingly I cannot find an answer to this problem. I have a windows 2003 server in which I have applied EFS to a directory with sensitive data. The problem is, another server and workstation cannot access these files even though they are using the same domain admin account. A 2nd domain admin account is involved in which I created a certificate for that account and added it to the list of users that can access the files in the directory. No effect. Both security and sharing permissions allow full control of the encrypted directory for the domain admin accounts.
My question is, how do I access these files from the workstation after encrypting them? Every solution I found so far does not work.
Server with EFS share: Windows Server 2003 Enterprise
Workstation: Windows 7 Pro x64
Both are on Active Directory. The server above is not the AD server by the way.
Attempting the access the encrypted file from the workstation results in access denied. If I decrypt the file, I can access it from the workstation just fine.
