Unable to create new folder in a mapped network drive.

Last Modified: 2014-09-09
Just moved the companies shares from a Windows Server 2003 box to a Windows Server 2012 R2 box.  I have all of my folders under one master share and utilize access based enumeration.  My users can see the folders that have access to and browse as well.  However when they attempt to create a new folder they get the error I've attached.  I have this drive mapped through group policy preferences and have verified permissions as well as UAC (off).  I can manually browse through start - run \\hostname\sharename and \\ipaddress\sharename and can successfully create folders just fine.  Help!
