Windows 2003 server

By williamoshea ·
Dear colleagues,
In NT 4 and Win 2000 servers, when creating a new user account it was possible to use the variable "\\servername\sharename\%username%" when specifying the home folder in User manager for domain(NT) or AD (Win 2K). I tried to do the same in 2003 and got the error message: "the \\servername\sharename\foldername was not created because you do not have create access on the server......". How do I grant myself create access on this server if I am already logged in as the ADMINISTRATOR?
Pleae help!!!!!!!

Look at the permissions on "sharename" and folder hosting "sharename".
This is likely caused by the fact that the everyone group has read only access to shares by default on W2K3 servers.
Since the administrator is part of the everyone group, it has not been granted write access.

Microsoft is aware of this problemI found something about it in the KB and I have contacted them to obtain the hotfix (which has not yet been made available to the public). It has nothing to do with shares or sharename.
Thanks anyway.
