Domain user cannot save to C Drive
Posted on 2011-09-21
Windows 2003 domain, Windows 7 Pro
We have a user who needs to be able to save to the C Drive, to use their commercial banking application (some Java app).
I logged in as domain admin, added the domain user to the security permissions on the whole C Drive, for which it threw up errors for hyberfil.sys, pagefile.sys etc. No problems.
User stiill cannot save to C Drive. If they try they get a permissions error.
I added the domain user to the local admin group as a test, sure this would work.
What I noticed was that when I checked UAC before the user was part of the local admin group, UAC was ON. When I logged into the domain admin account, and also as the user with local admin rights, UAC showed as OFF.
