    I have just installed a 2003 server into a 2003 domain.
    I did a clean install, did the dcprop after the adprep in
    the forest and domain. It is the main DC in a small
    domain (2 servers) I have just migrated all the profiles
    and user directories from the server which it is
    releaving. I have done this by backing up and
    restoring. I have gone through and reconstructed the
    rights. The Domain admin and administrator groups have
    full control inherited from the parent directory (root of
    the file system d:\users\) The profiles and users
    directories each have explict rights for each user at
    thier directory. I only have about 50 users. I have
    checked this both through properties and effective

    The problem is even though I see that each user including
    myself has all the rights they need to modify (create,
    delete etc. files) they are unable to do so in both thier
    profile, user home drive or other shared common drive on
    this d:\ drive. I have reviewed this problem up down and
    sideways. It does not make sense to me. I would
    appreciate any help.

    Just to verify, but the settings are set in both the Share and the Security
    Tabs right?

    Also, once the security Settings are appropriate, have you reset the
    permissions on the parent and all child folders?

    Thanks, the problem was the share rights were set to
    everyone read. With W2K3 the most restrictive wins. I
    now can sleep!

    Thanks again.
