Noob to AD here, trying to solve a problem. Any help is greatly appreciated.
[strong]Can you assign access to a network shared folder based on a computer's group membership?[/strong]
I originally created a script that assigns a shared network folder (Drive S) according to user group membership, BUT some users work in different departments and each of those depts have their own specific shared folder. Besides the conflict of using the same drive letter for different shared folders (Drive S), I only want the users to see the shared folder (Drive S) used by that particular dept.
So, I tried assigning share folder permissions based on COMPUTER rather than USER membeship to a group (the logic being the script would apply only to computers belonging to a specific group and all users logging on to that computer would only pickup the relevant shared folder, and not every other shared folder the user has access to) but I can't get it to work.
Currently running a Win 2003 server for dc and client pc's are win 2k and win xp. Users just recently migrated from vt terminals to pc and have very limited knowledge/experience using pc's. I want to keep it simple for the users; so, I've decided to assign Drive S for all network shared folders.
I sincerely apologize if the answer turns out to be a simple one, but I'm new to this and even after extensive research, have hit a wall. Many thanks to all.
