Access denied to shared folders

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Kevin Weilbacher, Mar 1, 2004.

  1. I did an inplace upgrade from SBS2000 to SBS2003 Premium last night. All
    went well.

    However, all users are having problems accessing the pre-existing shared
    company and user folders (that were there from SBS2000). They can read and
    open any of the files, but if they try to save it or create a new file, they
    get an error message that the drive is full, which it is not.

    BTW, when I did the upgrade, I added the Mobile user template to all users.
    My user id is with the Administrator template, and I can write to the shared
    drives.

    Any thoughts as to why this happened and the best way to fix it??

    When SBS 2003 is installed Disk Quotas are set on all
    Shared Folder located on the same Volume as the Users
    Folders. The default size is 1 GB. If the Shares are
    larger than this, you may see these results.

  3. This is an issue with permission, check to which groups the previous users where located and try to change the users group to the previous ones, currently they have
    only read access to the files or directories. check group permission in Server management you can solve this problem.

  4. i don't believe it's a permissions problem ... the disk quota may be the
    issue. I will let you know shortly.
