Unable to create new folder in a mapped network drive.

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!

    Did you inherit the permission from 2003 or started new ones, maybe the certificate form old sytem still in place and override the new permission do a force permission from the gpo object or from command line, then restart all the computers to access new policy

    I created a new share on the Windows 2012 server and did a Robocopy to copy the files from the 2003 server to the 2012 server.  I then setup permissions on each folder.  So no I didn't inherit the permissions.

    Accepted Solution

    I fixed it.  Ended up changing permissions at the top level shared folder.  Gave Domain Users read/execute, List folder contents, and read permissions. Not sure why this fixed it but it's working now.
