Problems coping files with the Domain Administrator account

Problems coping files with the Domain Administrator account
I have a Windows 2003 Server that is in my domain, I am sharing files and currently there is a folder that resides on this server that I can copy from one location to the next with the local administrator but not the Domain administrator but I can use a user in the same domain and it lets me copy. When copying from the domain Administrator I get an error that says “Error Coping File or folder “, I check the permissions of the folder and it says that the Domain administrator has full rights to the folder.

Thanks

Just some fast ideas....
Domain admin doesn't neccessarily mean, that this account has full permissions. In a domain, the domain admin account is usually member of the local adminitrator group as well as the locla admin.

If you check the permisisons, make sure, the domain admin is member of the local adminstrators group. Chech the permisisons of the files inside the folder as well as the permisisons of the folder (and subfolders). Even check, who is the owner of the folders and files.

If everything is as it should be by default, the folder, files and subfolders grant access for the local admin group and therefore the domain admin an a member of this group. But permissions on files or subfolders may be different, if inheritage of permisisons is stopped on a deeper level.  

You may try to reset the subfolder, files permisisions by either to take the ownership of the folder, subfolder and files by the local admin group.

But from my perspective, somewhere in the structure is a permisison problem.
