Mapped drive is not accessible. Access is Denied.
Posted on 2012-04-12
We had an issue yesterday where we were unable to change an Exchange 2010 Distribution List from being Global to Universal. I found an article online, that had me run this command in powershell:
dsquery group -limit 0 | dsmod group -c -q -scope u
This seems to have let us make that change.
However, I have a new problem now, that never happened prior to this change. Several employees are members of a security group, which is also a member of another security group. This does not seemed to be recognized in the case of drive mappings anymore, and users get access denied when attempting to connect to mapped drives.
Employee John Smith is a member of security Group A.
Group A is a member of DriveMap group.
John Smith cannot access the drive map as a member of Group A.
When John Smith is added as a member of DriveMap group directly, it works.
Again, this has been working fine for all this time, up until we had the issue with changing global to universal distribution lists. I'd rather not go through several hundred employees and add them to the DriveMap group manually, when it should apply the way we have groups broken down.
