NT Workstation Security Problem

By ruloth ·
I have an NT 4.0 Workstation running NTFS and is on SP6. After joing the domain the PC will not allow domain users to access the local drive. Users with Domain Admin permissions have no problem accessing the PC. All the directory and file permissions are standard from the NT installation. The only way I can allow the Domain users to use the PC is by making them a member of local administrators group on the PC.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Make sure that you did not give anyone the No Access permission as this permission overrides any other permission.

Appreicate the reply.

As I stated in the message the permissions are the NT defaults. On the C Drive the share is the default(Everyone). The NTFS permissions are also the default(Everyone). This is the same for the WINNT directory.

Within each user you can allow them to logon to certain computers or all computers. Make sure that the users are allowed to logon to all computers, or at least the computer in question. This is stored on the server, not the local perms.

All users within our environment are able to logon to any workstation. This was one of the first items I had double checked. Just before replying to this message I went and changed all the permissions on the c drive and sub directories for "Everyone" to have full control. It did not make a difference. After the domain user logs on he/she is prompted for a user name and password to access c$.

Are you running "System Policies" ?
If so, the problem may be there.
Otherwise you need to change the permissions for the "Right to Log on Locally"

I'm not running system policies but I did check the Account Policy. Something I hadn't thought of. Checking the permissions. My setting indicated that Domain Users have the right to log on locally. ( For a minute I thought you had it!!)

If you are using DHCP reserve that workstation's IP address with a bogus Unique Idenitfier, then release and renew the workstation.

We are using DHCP. I made the changes that you suggested. There was no difference.

Sorry, could you please clarify:
are the users sitting at this workstation when you say they log on to it or they connecting remotely to a share?

Have you excplicitly shared out c to everyone or are you using the default c$ share?
