Access denied to virtual disk

Hi All,

Have a problem at the moment with my SQL server (MS SQL 2008 R2 - Svr2008 R2). The virtual guest has 4 disk C:, D:, F: and G: when i logon to the server as domain admin i get a access denied to the G: disk. If i then logon as the local administrator i can see the disk without a problem. This problem occurs with any other account other than the local admin account.

I have checked my credentials and they are all OK. Other domain admin accounts have been tested with the same result. I have checked the NTFS permissions of the disk and they look correct.

Any suggestions?

Update: i have now added the local users group to the root of the drive and that is now allowing me to browse the disk and folders. When i right click the root of the disk and select properties it tells me that the recycle bin on the drive is corrupt?

Is this drive a raw LUN mapped from a SAN?
or some other ISCSI device?

Yes its connected to a LUN on our SAN. All disks are on the same LUN.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

Yes but these are VMDKs? and not raw device mappings directly to the LUN?
and you are not accessing this LUN with the G: drive from another server are you?

are there any logs in the event viewer regarding this volume?

No, no events at all. I think something went wrong with the permissions, i have now recreated and propagated the permissions to all the child objects. Im no longer getting the access denied errors but im still getting the message saying the recycle bin is corrupt and whether i want to clear it or not.

Sorry, in answer to your previous question yes there is a VMDK file for each disk situated on the same LUN.
