My Existing files are read only at domain users

By sfarhanj ·
Hello eveyone

I have just installed new domain environment i.e. Win Server 2003 Enterprise, Active Directory Installed, Policy has been set-up through OU, Users have been created..

Now at client machine i logged in as domain user successfully, the problem is when i logged in as domain user the existing files like; my word documents, excel documents, etc are just read only. I cannot make changes in my file, if i want to make changes in my file then i want to save this file somewhere else then file can be changed/ modified.

does anyone know what is the problem, is it a group policy issue, can i make changes in a OU Policy at SERVER, if so please guide me..

I want my domain users to change/ modify their files easily without save as the file same where else...

Your urgent response will be greatfull for me

Thanks a Lot
