Hi guys,

I made a new domain admin account, and i am trying to drop a script into the NETLOGON folder and it says i dont have permission.
I checked permissions on the folder and it has ADMINISTRATORS for full control..and i am a member.

Are you trying to copy it over a share?  If so, did you check the share permissions in addition to the actual folder permissions on the remote folder?

Are you going to the UNC or the local Location of the DC?
If you are going via UNC and have not tried the local path I would recommend doing.

Per Anthony's post: check the share permissions in addition to the actual folder permissions
actual folder permissions = Security permissions.

It should be there but... if domain admins isn't in the list, add it.

I was trying via UNC. And yes I did check the share permissions also. Administrators had access
Anthony CarterCommented:
Just for information, but scripts should go into the SYSVOL share, not the NETLOGON.  NETLOGON is really for Win95, 98 and NT 4.0.

Quick quote:

Note - Netlogon Share is not a Folder named Netlogon On Domain controller . In fact it is a folder where , all the logon scripts are stored. So as mentioned above , Script folder under sysvol folder will act as Netlogon share ( Location - %SystemRoot%\sysvol\sysvol\<domain DNS name>\scripts)

Are  you apart of the Domain Administrators security group?

Just checking...
You created a new  account. Then logged on that account.

Or, did you give an existing account that was already logged, the admin rights?  If so, to get the new rights, be sure you log off this account then logon
Chris HInfrastructure ManagerCommented:
It sounds like the share rights are set to read only or are not set to write.  They trump your NTFS security settings.
Mohammed KhawajaManager - Infrastructure:  Information TechnologyCommented:
By default only read privileges are assigned to the NETLOGON folder.  If you need to modify a file in that share, you should either do it via the sysvol folder (i.e. \\domain.local\sysvol\domain.local\scripts\script1.cmd).

Permissions on NETLOGON folder is set by default by the DC and you should not change it.
