Local Drive Permissions

By dave_d631 ·
When we add an XP pc to the Domain, the Domain users become part of the Local Users group. This group only has Read and Execute ability on the local drive. We can change and restamp the permission, but with more XP pc's coming in, it would take time.

Can a Group Policy be set up so that the Users group has full access to the drive?

On our network users are not automatically added to the local users group but a domain profile is created under documents and settings when they log onto that machine. They have read, write, and execute abilities with the exception of other users folders. No changes were made to allow this function. Server is SBS 2003 clients Windows XP PRO.

What kind of server are you running?

Yes.
You may use a GPO for this.
Just open Group Policy Editor for your gpo(gpedit.msc) and go to Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies.

You may then control the membership of domain groups in the local groups using the feature "restricted groups".

I think it would be even better if you set directory permissions via gpo:
Just go to Security Settings -> FileSystem in Group Policy Editor and set the ACLs.

When connect to a domain so the the users can user the programs you should make the domain users power users.
As power users they can install network printers and have access to install drivers. they can make smoe changes like change the clock.

Good Luck

Suggestion: Go along the lines of answer 1, but store the profile on a network drive. (After first use, it will automatically save locally and update evrytime it is accessed from network.)
