NTFS Rights Issues

By david.metcalf ·
I am experiencing an issue assigning rights on a WIN2K WEB server residing in a NT 4.0 domain using NT 4.0 Domain User Accounts. I feel like I have tried every combination of NTFS, and IIS rights to accomplish my goal, which is to only allow certainDomain Groups to see the contents of a folder or file. In NT 4.0 I just removed the Everyone Group, and then added the Domain Group that I wanted to have access. If they had not logged into the domain they would be prompted to login. If I had problems with access then I would create a Local Group and add Global Groups to it, one of these always worked. The only thing I have gotten to work with the WIN2K server is to allow Everyone, or to add users to the Administrators Group. Neither of these are acceptable in this situation. Any suggestions?

Try assigning a different security template to the Win 2000 server. There is a template in the "Securuty Templates" snap-in for compatibility with NT4 networks- it is called something like COMPATSRV for the server. I don't know that this will solve your problem entirely, but it could help.

It turned out that when accessing a secure page that uses asp the account must have rights to the ADO and ODBC directories also.

Make sure that the groups you are giving access to have the right to logon locally. IIS requires the accounts accessing it have the right to logon on to the local machine not just over the network.
