Long story short, I discovered the NTFS permissions on all our Native Windows 2000 servers, at the root of each partition, had been reset to "Everyone." Of course I had my shares set to not propagate permissions, so that wasn't an issue. For some reason this did not affect the one box that we had that used to be NT4.0 and was upgrade to 2000. I have checked with several local companies, and when they checked, theirs too had been reset. What the heck? Anyone else out there notice this? And yes, I am aware these are the default permissions for w2k server, but I KNOW these were changed. I am trying to find out if maybe a "patch" did this.
