Access Denied Errors

By jr_hearty ·

A couple months ago, I installed a Windows Storage Server 2003 appliance. I moved all of my users home directories to a share on the appliance.

Ever since then, some users will sporadically get "access denied" errors when trying to open or close files in their directory. Each user has been assigned full control of their home directory.

Here's an example. If a user tries to open a word doc from their directory while in word, they might get an access denied error. If they just go out to Windows explorer and double click on the file, it will open fine.

Has anyone else had a similar problem? How did you solve it?

Sounds like an connection issue

How many concurrent connections do you have running most of the time?

It sounds as if you are exceeding your alloted CAL's for the File Server and this is causing some systems to be interminably locked out of the system. It could also be that some CAL's are not being released properly when a user logs off something quite common with MS Server Applications.

This might be of some help

Or there could be a problem with the LAN connection that is allowing packets to crash and intermittently not allowing a new connection request. This should only happen when there is a high amount of traffic on the network. If that's the case you may need to look at a faster network connection for the entire system.
