Mapping a network drive?

Mapping a network drive?

Mapping a network drive?

Hello, I have a MS 2003 DC  with alot of shared folders.  I'm starting to have problems with two of them.  When i search for a computer and enter the sercer's name it pop up i can access the drive that i want, but when i map it and try to use it it say's "Access is denied".  This problem just started happening, all the foldes have the same permisions and rights.  Also any new folder that i create i can't map.

RE: Mapping a network drive?

There are folder permissions, and there are share permissions.  Make sure the share permissions are set to your specifications.  

RE: Mapping a network drive?

Remember that if you've removed the "inherit permissions" checkbox in the security tab, any newly created or copied folders in the directory will not inherit perms set on the root OR retain perms from the original location (respectively).
For NTFS perms, Copy retains, Move inherits.

I've had to go to the security tab and check the "replace permissions on child containers", apply, and it'll force propagation.
