Access Denied to Share but,,,
Posted on 2011-10-28
Both our Network Admin and Network Engineer are stumped.
User receives "Access is Denied" to their home directory mapped through DFS but can access the share directly. Problem occurs only on SOME machines. They could log into the PC next to them in the lab and have it work fine. In testing we have also seen it happen the other way around. User's home directory works fine through DFS but cannot access the share directly. A different user on the same PC works fine. Issue happens against two different file servers in two different locations against different DC's in the same domain. DNS is shared across the whole domain. Only seen it happen on Win7 cleints.
Have tried deleting the profile for that user on problem PC and logging in again, no joy.
Creating another share to the same folder and it works fine from problem PC but standard share still fails.
Reimaging machine works but seems a bit overkill.
Initially we though it may have been an issue with DFS but we couldn't find anything and then we were able to duplicate the issue the other way around where DFS was not the problem connection but the direct share on the server was.
