Access is denied for shared folder

    We have recently addedd two Windows 2003 servers to our
    domain after an upgrade of AD. Both Windows 2003 servers
    have been promoted to a DC.

    When you create a shared folder, any user, no matter if
    they have full control in security of the folder, gets
    an "Access is denied" when you try to write to the folder
    from the network. There is no problem writing to the
    folder from the server or if you access it through an IPC
    share, those methods don't create the error

    One thing I noticed is that the Read-Only attribute for
    ever folder on the server has a grey filled check mark.
    If you clear the check mark, click ok, then look at the
    properties of the folder again, the check mark is back.
    If do an attrib on the folder, it shows no attributes set.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    You are bumping up against inherited permissions. Child
    folders inherit the permissions of the parent folder. You
    need to add write privileges to the child, change the
    parent, or create a new OU/User Group with the permissions
    your users require.

    Hi Jeff,

    The issue may be caused by the ACL of the folder is corrupted.

    Let's create a new folder and share it. Then, use the subinacl.exe to reset
    the ACL of the folder to default.

    Note: the subinacl.exe is a Resource Kit utility. It's not free for
    download.

    Hi Kevin,

    After you have installed the Windows 2000/2003 Resource Kit on the server,
    you can use the subinacl.exe.

    You can run "suninacl.exe /?" to get the detail help about how to use the
    utility.
