Permission denied when accessing shares on Windows Server 2012 Standard from WIndow Server 2012 R2 server RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are having issues accessing shares on a standalone Windows Server 2012 system.  All the Administrators can access the files when they are on the console, and when they remote in via Remote Desktop Connection.

     We can map the share, but we can't access the files; access denied.  All the administrators are listed has having full access via the Sharing permissions, we even tried granting full control to everyone; that didn't work either.

    Found articles reference registry entries disableLeasing and LocalAccountTokenPolicy, and setting these values didn't resolve the issue.

    I can logon to the Windows Server 2012 server and access shares on a Windows Server 2012 R2 server, but I can access shares on a Windows Server 2012 server from a Windows Server 2012 R2 server.

    Any Ideas,

    DJ

  • Hi donsjones,

    Thanks for your post.

    Does it happen to all shares ? Could you please create a new share and assign the premission to another account and try to access from server 2012R2 again?

    What about other clients access share on server 2012?

    Usually if you recive the access denied, it is more like to be permission problem. Could you please check both the share permission and NTFS permission on the share for the access user?

    And if it still doesn't work, you could use Process Monitor to troubleshoot you access denied problem.

  • Thanks for the reply, yes it happens on all file shares.

    The Windows Server 2012 Server is a standalone server, it's not part of any windows domain.  It's an inherited server, and we are trying to move data off of it, due to it's configuration, it's not permitted to be part of the Windows Domain.

    I would agree that it points to a permission problem, but when all administrators have full access via NTFS Permissions, and Share Permissions this doesn't seem to point to NTFS Permissions.

    We have created a local group and assign all Administrators to it, and all NTFS Permissions are assigned to it as well.

    Locally, we can access the files without any problems.  It's only mapping a drive to Windows Server 2012 is the issue.  We can map from Windows Server 2012 to Windows Server 2012 R2 just fine.

  • Hi donsjones,

    If possible could you please also test that change another server 2012R2 and map to server 2012 again. If the problem still happens.

    And you might need to use Process Monitor to troubleshoot you access denied problem.

  • Ms. Dong,  all of our Windows Server 2012 R2 servers have the same problem.  We do not see any denies in  process monitor. or on the Windows Server 2012 Security Log.
