    Adding second windows 2003 server to a w2003 domain. Users are unable to
    create files on the new server.

    Have tried setting system up with and without active directory. Only the
    administrator can do anything other than read files.

    The main server has been up and running for a couple of years and the
    security works right. Other W2K servers work right too.

    start over and use DCPromo to add the second server as a DC.

  4. Hello Trez,

    If both servers are now configured as Active Directory Domain Controllers
    and this went well, verify both using dcdiag /v out of the support tools
    (which are installable from your Windows Server CD in the Directory

    Then look into the folders which the users are supposed to access. Look at
    the share permissions and the security permission of these folders. A share
    created in Windows Server 2003 has by default only read permissions to
    everyone, guess that's where you have issues. But just compare the share and
    security permissions on both machines and you should be able to figure it

    Gruesse - Sincerely,

    When you say that "Users are unable to create files on the new server" can
    you be more specific?

    What exactly are you trying to achieve? Did you setup the correct Share and
    NTFS permissions on the share?

    Are the users members of the Active directory domain and do they have more
    than read access to the share? Do they belong to some group that is
    preventing the access to the share (deny permissions prevail over the allow
    I hope that the information above helps you

    Good Luck
