I have installed a Windows Server 2008 on my HPProL server. I have built a test environment. I have installed ADDS and other necessary services. I'm running a test Windows 7 client. The network has no errors (I have checked the configurations). However, when I try to create a file inside a Shared Folder I am unable to do so. Even as a domain admin I cannot create them. I have setup NTFS permissions too. But still I cannot create files inside a shared folder.
Is there a permission problem?
Cannot connect to shared folders
For Windows XP
You must create a file which has a filename FIXANON.REG. Then use ANSI for encoding. Save file as .all files. If you don’t do this, file will only be FIXANON.REG.txt. This will not work.
——————- Use text after this line ——————-
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
——————- Use text before this line —————–
Click the file then respond YES to the registry question. After that, reboot your computer.
For Windows 7
Go to "Local Policies" >> "Security Options". Look for the entry "Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication level" then open it. Click the dropdown menu then select "Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated". Apply the settings.
In the Advanced sharing settings page of Network and sharing center, you need to set it as Work/Home profile.
Try the following:
-Enable the network discovery
-Turn on the file and print sharing
-Turn off the password protected sharing
-Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers
The other settings such as encryption I have set as use 128 bit encryption.
