Windows Vista Ultimate: cannot create folders or files on a shard network drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Morning all,

    Yesterday we intergrated our first Vista Ultimate desktop in our network.

    For some strange reason it is not possible to create new files or folders on the network drive hosted on a Windows 2003 SBS server.
    The laptop is part of the domain and the user is logged on with his domain account.

    The user receives the following error:

    destination folder access denied you need permission to perform this action

    All rights on the shard drive are correct, the use has full control over the desitanion folder.

    Other users, still working on Windows XP don't have this problem, so it seems Vista related.
    All help is welcome as this is putting me to the test for some hours now.

     

    Best regards

    Fons

  • The solution to the problem was found in the credentials set to the share, not on the credentials on folder level.

    Previous (windows XP clients) setting for "everyone" permitting "read" secured the share
    For windows Vista clients "read" and "change" needs to be applied in order to allow the client to write on folder structure below.

    Further down the folder structure credentials can be set as normal via Domain Groups.

     

    Thanks for your swift reply and advise

  • Hi Fons, does the issue also occur if you use the same domain account and use Windows XP computer to log on? If not, you may still need to check permission of the domain account or post the issue to our server forum.
