Terminal server shares not accessable

Posted on 2011-10-13

I have a terminal server set up for our teachers to be able to access our grading program and the grades that are on a share on the server.  I have a 3 windows 2008 servers.  One that is our Active Directory, DHCP.,DNS, print server.  One that is our fileserver (except the grades that are on the terminal server) and the terminal server.

The Terminal server quit allowing remote desktop access from other stations and also from the thinclients that were in the classrooms for the teachers to access the program and grades.  I couldn't resolve that problem so did a server state restore back to when it allowed remote access.  That worked but I couldn't get to the share that was on the terminal server even as administrator.

I restarted all the servers but I still couldn't access the share.  I redid the system state of the terminal server back to today and now I can't access the share at all.

I didn't change the Active Directory server or the other fileserver at all except to restart them.  How so I get the share on the terminal server to be assigned with the active directory?  I can't even access it with the command  \\chsserver\  It tell me that I am not authorized to access the share.  The terminal server has the file server role installed.

    Accepted Solution

    What error do you get? Did you check the event logs on the server? Does it show a failure audit in the security event logs?

    Maybe you should check the "Access this computer from the network" setting?
