permission problems

By DANNO ·
After we cleaned nimda off our servers our permission was messed up big time. None of our users are able to connect to the share drives unless I included them in the admin group. I have tried to reset the permission but it still does not work. Can you tell me the exact step to solve this problem.I meant steps for resetting permission level.

Thanks.

You are in a real jam. How many servers are we talking about? How many users and file shares are we talking about? Do you backup your servers on a regular basis? You may have to restore from the last virus-free backup and then manually restore other changes along the way. Either way, you are in for a long process. You ran the Removal tool on all clients and severs? I do not know why you wouldn't be able to reset permissions. I know this virus can change permissions on local and network files/folders, but as far as I know, the permissions should still work once the virus is cleaned up. Did it affect your User Manager settings (Users and Groups)? I would need more info given your situation.

I faced the same problem on our network when we were hit by nimda.

I used Nimda scanning tool from Norten / Symantec site & run it on every Pc. It cleaned the virus effectively. But what it does that it changed the permisisons on each & every share directory. Admin full control... & ..... (don't remember others)

To resolve the problem I had to manually reset permissions. So I did that. Easiest way is to allow "Authenticated Users" the right to access the directory. I used that on my W2K network.

Here we don't have users to share their directories, so I did that only on servers + some client shares.

Adding all users to admin group is not recommended for security reasons.
