I have a user that I am trying to give access to a directory in one of my servers.I have setup the dir and given him and his dept users local admin rights to the directory but they can not connect to it.Is there any suggestions.

Permissions are only checked at logon, so have your users logoff and then back on. Also, have you shared the folder?

Hope this helps,
Don

My guess is:
The user is member in another group with "no access" to the dir.

If the directory is a folder in a share, rather than a share itself, the permissions at the "root" share may be interfering with the permissions of the folder itself. Check and change the permissions at the next share level down the tree.

Hi,

This may sound silly, but can they actually see the server?

If you are using IP, can they ping the NT Server? are there any other shares that they can see and access on the same server?

As per one of the other replies, check the grouping/local grouping/global grouping, are they domain users, does this server authenticate them? is the group you created a local group or a domain group? ensure that they are included in the correct groups.

I'd maybe start with removing the department and having just the single user, try and gain access under that ID, build the access up slowly just to cover any possible grouping problems.

I hope this avenues to take help.

Regards
Gary.

You say they cannot connect to the share...Is there an error message displayed? Make sure that they have permissions at the share to access the share... Share level rights are separate from NTFS permissions.
