    I have a dhcp network 1pdc 2bdc's. I have setup a share on one of the bdc's which I have given everyone full access to. I can see it from my NT workstation, however, one of the NT users in our domain cannot see it. Any suggestions?

    Does that user have any trouble accessing other network resources?

    Are there any restrictions on the share, or in the NTFS security settings? Remember, when deciding which permissions to grant, NT will grant the least restrictive of all the share permissions, and the least restrictive of all the NTFS permissions, but the MOST restrictive of the two (except when one of the groups that the user in in, is assigned NO ACCESS, then the no access permission will apply - No Access ALWAYS supercedes any other access permission).

    What this means, is that assume that User1 is in group1 and group2 but not in group3.

    If the share permission is assigned as follows:
    Group1 - Read
    Group2 - Read/Write
    Group3 - No Access

    Then the user will get Read/Write access.

    If the NTFS permission is as follows:
    Group1 - Read/Write/Modify
    Group2 - List
    Group3 - Full Control

    Then the user will get Read/Write/Modify rights...

    But, if both those permissions apply to the same share, then the user in question will only get Read/Write permissions and no modify permission.

    A user in Group 3 will get No Access, even if he is in all the other three groups. A user only in Group2 will get List permission.

    Back to your problem... Does the user get any errors when he logs onto the domain? Can he map to other shared directories?

    It might be that his machine's computer account in the domain has become corrupted, but if this were true, he would not be able to log onto the domain. Also, if he has changed his password and not logged off and back on, then he might have the same problem, or oif his password has expired and he has not changed ot to a new one, then this might occur

    Hope this helps

    The user has full rights to the share. She can also access other domain shares with no problem.
