Hi,

I dont believe so because userrights are kept by active directory so their UID is not changed and your fileserver remembers them (unless you have used local users and rights trhoughout your domain which i refuse to believe)

Just hook your fileserver back into the domain. If not? AD-users will have no rights at all.

1. Remove the server from the domain if it is just a file server this won't be a problem
2. Go into your AD on your domain controller and delete the computer account for the server so a new ID is created when you rejoin it
3. Rejoin the computer to the domain and everything should be back to normal

Let us know if you have any problems.
