I am currently working for a Sheriff's Office, I help manage their network. I recently ran into a problem with one of the users accounts; she is unable to access the shared folders we got setup. Its telling her she does not have access to them, but when i go into active directory she is part of the group that is suppose to be able to access them. Someone that is part of the exact same groups as her can log onto the computer and is able to access the folders.
So i was wondering if anyone knows what might cause this issue.
Background: When you add a user to a group, they need to log off and log back on to get the group membership associated. This may have been the issue as suggested by COLGeek.
As bumnut is saying, you'll want to make sure that the Share permissions are set to at least Read for either the User or the Group the user is a member of.
On the Security tab you will want to make sure the user or the user's group has the correct permissions applied as well.
Make sure the user is logging into the domain and not onto the local computer. If you are being prompted for a username/password, the credentials are not being passed. This may mean they are logged into the computer locally or the password does not match the Active Directory account for starters.
Thanks for all the suggestions. The problem i was having was solved by me going to each folder and adding the group under security and checking what that group can do to that folder. Again thanks for all the help.
