    AD User account problems!!!

    Hi I have a teachers AD account that seems to have a problem, Her account member of are correct but she can see the C drive and list of mapped servers which she shouldn't be able to see!!! Is it likely her AD account has just become corrupt or is it something more sinister?

    Any advise on this matter would help me sleep

    Thanks

    Did they have an admin level access previously? Is this on only 1 client? If so, run Delfpof and then gpupdate /force on the client. Reboot and see if they come back.

    If it is on more than 1 client then it must be some settings on the server side. Do you have any logon scripts running also?

    What should stop her seeing the C: drive? Is this a group policy setting? If so, have group policies applied successfully (do a gpupdate /force and check the event log)

    Does the problem just happen on one machine? If so, then suspect the cached copy of the profile or the process which applies group policies (if you have a 1202 error in the event log then you can google for that - the event log message tells you what to look for!)

    Is she potentially logged on somewhere else? Also, before deleting the user account it's always an idea to first delete any relevant profiles - local and redirected to see if that irons out any issues - though this one is an oddity that sounds more like a GP issue. Is she somehow not in the right OU...sometimes a user can be accidentally moved!! Worth checking.

    if you log on as her and run gpresult /v then what result to you get - this should tell you what's going on and I suspect will say that there's a problem applying the particular GPO. It might also give a hint as to why there's a problem.

    ran a gpupdate /force pc restarted but again group policy hasn't been applied to her AD account!!!

    But whats more upsetting is she can see all the servers and doesn't even ask for a administrator or password to access them!!!

    Does this user still have access if you disable it? If that is the case then its not only gp thats the problem it would seem.

    LOL

    @Athlona: Just to clarify, user was not logged on anywhere when the account was disabled? Resetting the password is probably a good idea too.

    EDIT: as to giving access to Teacher accounts to students, well over here that a violation of the AUP and I would report to my manager who will no doubt tell the head. Teacher probably wont do that again in a hurry.

    Joking apart, can users log onto PCs locally (i.e. not using the domain)? If so then is there any chance she's logging on locally, and her local account/s has/have admins rights? If you've disabled her AD account (and it's not being re-enabled by someone else????) then there's no way she should be able to log on using it.

    Are you the only member of Domain Admins or are there others and, if so, have any of those accounts (or yours) been compromised? Maybe remove/disable/delete any unnecessary Domain Admins accounts then change passwords on all those remaining.
