    Ranger: How to allow access to a certain folder on C drive?

    Morning All,

    I'm in the process of making the originally seperate music network part of our main school curriculum network.

    I've installed Ranger and whenever I log in as a student I get an error "ma003dmn save failed!" (this is to do with an M-audio device). I assume this is because Ranger disallows access to the C drive. When I login as administrator the problem doesn't happen.

    My question is, Can someone point me to where in ranger I can change it to allow access to a C drive folder (ie. C:\program files\m-audio)?

    Many thanks
    Dan

    Try manually setting the permissions on the folder (assuming the drive is NTFS and not FAT!). If this works then you can deploy file & folder permissions from a group policy, set them up here using the group policy management console - 'computer config - policies - windows settings - secuirty settings - file system'.

    its unlikely to be ranger, it masks the c drive so you cant navigate to it easily but it doens't change the NTFS perms, thats where i suspect the problem lies. Unless the software has some really bad programming in it!.

    I've tried setting local folder permissions but this hasn't solved it. The problem doesn't occur when ranger isn't installed or if you login as staff or admin which doesn't hide C drive. It's really frustrating as I want to get this job ticked off the list but I can't figure it out.

    Cheers
    Dan

    then you will need to change the settings in ranger so it doens't hide the c drive, I dont have a ranger server near me but i'm sure its possible, because of the way group policy is applied it's all or nothing.
