I've just rebuilt a new server and all is working ok, until I come to share permissions.

For some reason, when I alter the security permissions for a shared folder, it only gives me the option of servername/users and not domain/users.

As soon as I try to enter domain/users, it just tells me it can't be found. At the moment I've got around it I think with everyone, but would like to know why this isn't working.

I can select individual domain/username but it won't accept the user group.

Thanks

is it resolving DNS ok.

Check your DNS settings again and see if you can ping YOUR FQDN.

Have to ask also, its 100% joined to the domain correctly, did you give the server the same name as it used to have? . Maybe an idea to delete the computer name in AD then rejoin the server to the domain

yep just ping'd the domain name quite happily. As far as I can tell it's joined ok.

Just comparing to our main server. On the main root, d:\data\work, I have main 'sharing' permissions as just

Domain Users (DomainName\Domain Users

which is the same as my main file server. However under security, my file server has

Administrators (DomainName\Administrators)
Users (DomainName\Users)

and on the server I have issues with

Administrators (MachineName\Administrators)
Users (MachineName\Users)

as soon as I try to add domain, it tells me it can't find it
