I have a file server and would like to create a folder that can be accesssed and shared to some users of our network. We have AD and Windows 2003 domain. Our file server is Windows 2000 server with SP4. I add users to a global group then add the global group to a local group of the file server. I give the permission to the local group. Unfortunatelly, the user can't access to the folder. If I give the permission to the user, users have no problem to access to the folder. Can any expert help me for this problem. Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Why are you not giving the Global group permissions to the share? I’m sorry if I am misunderstanding your question, but it should work if you do this. Is the Windows 2000 machine on a different domain? If this is the case, do you have a trust enabled?

    Per Microsoft's recommendations you are nesting correctly. Do you have more than one domain? Are they in the same forest? Is the resource (the share file) and the domain local group in the same domain?

    Has the user logged out and back in again? If you grant access via group membership, the user needs to do this to pick up the new membership (and get access to the folder). The reason it would work if you grant user access is you have altered access directly to the folder which works immediately. Just a thought....:-)
