Issues with connecting server 2003 to a SBS 2011 domain

We have just resetup a network that used to have a SBS2003 server but now has a new SBS 2011 server. This was a fresh setup and all the computers are connected happily and working fine, except for the old Server 2003, which we disconnected from the prvious domain and then manually joined to the new domain (different domain name from Old one).

We have folder redirection enabled on the server for users desktops and documents. When we try to open a executable files from either of the redirected folders (desktop or documents folder) or even a share on the server we get an error (see attached file) Title \\SERVERNAME\Redirectedfolders\$USER$\Filename , MESSAGE 'Windows cxannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

Other files such as PDFs and text documents seem to be fine.

Am i missing something that would have been done if it were possible to use the http://connect option on SRV 2003???

Is this 2003 server the old SBS2003 server?

A few things to check on the 2003 Server:

System & Security event logs - look for any authentication errors or anything else that relates to problems accessing resources on the domain.

Have you got any old mapped drives etc. left over from the old domain setup?

It could also be File Protection - while working on the 2003 server, right-click on one of the files you can't open and go to Properties.  Look for a message stating "This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer" - if you see this, click Unblock.

If it was that, we need to find out what's causing it.

Bit of research myself and found that uninstalling advanced security for Internet Expolorer resolves this issue

Fair enough, although this is a root cause of the blocking of files as I mentioned, you got there yourself.  Thanks for sharing the solution.
