I have a 2008 R2 server on the domain and I went to create a share from one of its directories and when I tried to add users to the security permission for the share the server only will recognize local accounts not domain accounts when I change the location where its getting the users from it doesnt give me any other option besides the local server I cant point it to the domain. I did a gpresult and it shows its getting its GP rules from a old DC server that is still on the network but no longer has the role of DC. I tried to do a gpupdate but it failed I also did a reboot and no changes took place. How can I get it not only to see the domain for folder permissions but also change to get its GPO info from a valid DC on the network?
