    Shared Folders

    Hi

    I have set up a couple of shared folders to store data. In sharing i give the folder full control to Domain Admins, and modify to staff which is a security group i made in AD. I gave Domain Admins full control to the security permissions of the folder and modify for staff.
    The Domain Admin account i made the folders on can get access to the folders, when i log on as a different Domain Admin account, i don't have access to the folder until i click continue for everything.

    Does anyone have any ideas about this?

    Thanks
    James.

    Where or when are you being prompted to click OK?

    What you should do, is right click a folder and select Properties. Click the Sharing tab > Advanced Sharing.

    Tick Share this Folder, specify a share name, then click on Permissions (just below). Give Everyone Full Control, then click OK, OK.

    Click the Security tab, click Edit. You can now add/remove individual users or Security Groups. Does this help?

    I created the folder using Domain Administrator account, then logged off and logged on as a different domain admin account. When i go to access the folder it displays "you don't currently have permissions to access this folder, click Continue to permanently get access to this folder". When i click continue i can get in no problem but i can't see why it is showing this as Domain Admins have full control over share and security permissions?

    Are both admin accounts members of the Domain Admins group? I presume if you added admin1 and admin2 accounts to the list, instead of a Security Group, does this work?

    Also (thinking about it) navigate to Control Panel > Folder Options > View and untick Use Sharing Wizard (Recommended).

    This'll give you the advanced options for sharing folders.
