Can't edit shared files over network... just locally

    I just had to replace a Windows Server 2003 Domain Controller that died hard
    (could not be demoted).
    After some work, it is now synchronizing AD & DNS properly and everything on
    that end seems to be perfect.
    It is a member of a couple DFS replication groups, but they appear to be
    replicating fine.

    However, I can't add or edit any files via a network path, even as
    Administrator. It's as if I don't have the rights, but I can do it locally
    just fine, and I am the Admin.
    If I try and create a file through a shared path, it says 'Access Denied'.
    If I try and make a change to an existing file and then save as over top of
    that file, it says "Cannot Access this file. Check Security Privileges over
    the network".
    I log in through RDC and create files, but then connect to that file via UNC
    \\server\share and can't edit them.

    I'm using file / folder NT permissions, and have the exact same setup on 3
    other servers without this problem.
    I know this is something dumb that's going to irritate me when I find the
    answer, but for now I'm stumped.

    Can anyone help?

    It sounds like your share permissions are configured as read only. Check
    your share permissions and adjust as required. Domain Users > Full

    Sigh... I knew it would piss me off. I don't deal with these things too
    often, but could have sworn I compared that on both servers. Anyway, right
    you are. I'm not even going to say how long I messed with that. Thank you
