windows server 2008 r2 access denied error

October 19, 2011 at 14:29:20
Specs: Windows Server 2008 R2, Xenon X3440/16GB ram
I have a Win Server 2008 r2 server setup as a workgroup file share server. I have three folders shared and three out of five users can access all three folders. I have one folder that will not let two users access it. The two users can access the other two folders with no problem. All permissions are set the same and all Users are set as Administrators. I can not figure out why the two Users can not access the Scan folder when they can access the other two folders.

Thanks
Bill

I won't lecture you on what having users as administrators can do to your server.

Shares should be with full control to everyone. Is this so?

Do all users have accounts on the server that matches the accounts they logon with to their pcs? They should and the passwords should match.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

It was not my idea to give the users admin rights. I do what the customer says. The two users that can not access the shared folder can access the other two shared folders on the server. All permissions both Share and NTFS are set. It is only the one folder they can not access. Thank you for responding.

for such a simple network why are you setting ntfs rights?

"All permissions both Share and NTFS are set."
You didn't answer my question ".Shares should be with full control to everyone. Is this so?"

To help you I need to know the specific rights and how they were configured starting at the share level.

Are these shares nested? They should not be. Are you doing any denys?

You did explain to the customer the risks with running users as local admins?
You did make backup admin accounts on all pcs so when they toast the admin profile they are under you have another way of getting into the system?

Thank you for the help. I have setup several 2K8 Servers and all have worked well. I did tell the end user about the Admin problems it could cause but he was not worried. The solution that worked was to add Networks to the Share both Share and NTFS. The problem is solved for now. Again thank you for the help.
