Setting up shares on W2K domain controll

By petrosi ·
I used the same procedure to set up shares on a W2K server set up as a domain controller ( active directory) as I had on NT 4.0 PDCs, BDCs, and member servers. This procedure does not seem to work. What am I doing wrong with this W2K domain controller ?
First I share out a directory. Share permissions are Everyone-Full Control.
For testing the NTFS permissions are Everyone - Full . The sharing hand symbol appears but I can't see it from Windows 98 stations (That is all I have). Do I have to do something with the Directory Services to make it visible? If so, what is that. Or any other ideas one getting this share to be available ?

What is the share name your using? Win9x has problems with long share names or names with spaces in it. That was my initial thought when I read this. Hope it helps. Good luck.

My guess is that your share resides on C:.
If that is so, go back to your share, properties, security tab, and unmark " Allow inheretable permissions from parent...".
If is not on C:, go back to share, properties, security, and make sure that everyone is part of the list, and have proper permissions.

Good luck!

From the "Run" box on a 98 machine type "\\Servername\share name". Do you get a security error or is the device not found ? Are you running more than one network protocol ?

Just the things I would ask my self in your position.....Jeremy
