    Folder Security

    Hi

    Install SIMS on lots of PC's..

    Open security of the SIMS folder on local PC Domain Users to Modify..

    all execpt 1 PC that does not have securtiy ... only sharing ...

    Logged on as domain admin nothing... logged on as Local Administrator... nothing..

    Am I being a bit thick or is there something wrong..

    Any ideas ?

    Somebody Said FAT issue...

    But if it was FAT would the user have automatic modify rights and SIMS would open ?

    Firstly, what OS are you running and what version of sims?

    Have you got on demmand anti virus scanning enabled, will make sims appear to hang if it's trying to do an update at logon.....

    If it only has sharing it's probably a FAT32 filesystem which has no support for file permissions. Failing that is this PC a member of a domain? If not check that simple file sharing is disabled.

    Re: Folder Security

    Were you using your own version of SIMSPerm.bat?

    You may need to take owner ship of the folder and then define permissions again. Also go into the Advanced dialog box and check the "replace permissions on child objects..." box.

    Thats the problem... There is no security tag to get to the permissions ?

    Re: Folder Security

    On the offending PC, have you double checked that simple file sharing is turned off?

    Tools -> Folder Options -> View -> Advanced Settings -> Untick "Use simple file sharing (Recommended)"

    Could you also confirm whether the disk is formatted using FAT32 or NTFS - open My Computer, right click the drive and choose "Properties", look at the "File System" section.

    Thank you Guys >.....

    Its embarrasing as I was the FAT to NTFS issue....

    I did not look at it as I was convinced that all were NTFS ops:
