Cannot Write to Public Folder
I visit a local Primary school each Wednesday morning to look after PC problems. I am more of an engineer than Server specialist.
This morning I arrived and was told that staff can view but not write to the Public folder.
Permissions are "Everyone Full Control".
Admin/Domain Admin/Staff - Full Control
Everyone - Read and Execute.
The school is using Server 2k3 and Win XP Pro clients.
Any thoughts please?

Ensure the staff havn't magically been droped out of their groups.
and are they NTFS folder permissions or Share Permissions?

Thanks for the reply.
All staff are still in the STAFF group and permission are share permissions.

dont know why but i would try to unshare re share with different name etc
do it user specific for a test then by usertype.

Go to the Security Tab of Properties and click on the Advanced Button
Choose the Effective Permissions tab and try out individual users and the Staff Group to see what's happening.
It may be that while the Public folder has Full Control, the sub-folders are not inheriting permissions... you may well see the magic words <Not inherited> on permissions for the sub-folders!

Also check the time on the client machine is within that whats on the server. If they are more than 5 mins out kerberos will not work. Also try rebooting the client machine.

You need to set share and folder permissions, looks like you only have share permissions done.
