Possible Networking issue with MS platform (Software)

Feb 15, 2005
  1. Dear all:
    not sure if this is the right place to post. But I feel some of you networking pro may experiences the same thing as I did.... below is what I encountered:

    This question is about giving right permission for users to access a folder, which contains a MS Access file database. In this case, without using MS Access to grant Read/Write rights, I can use Server OS to control user permissions of Read/Write.

    However, it has happened a few times that suddenly some of us who have Administrator rights were only able to read the data but not able to alter; in other words, our permission rights have changed from Administrator to limited users. (Admin has both read and write, limited users only have read only).

    I checked on the Server end, the permissions (for accessing that folder) are given correctly (assigned within Active Directory).

    I was trying to figure out how it happened, and suddenly, I was able to view the database as Admin again.

    There seems to be a glitch with my network across MS platform or something... sometimes either I cannot view the computers/shared folders on network, or sometimes I cannot access certain directories with right permissions.


    Please let me know if any one of you ever encountered the same thing as I did. @_@

    I also posted this under OS/Software. If this is not ok, please take it off kindly.

    Thank you~~

    you may want to check your odbc admin files and reset change privileges
    I had a situation like that ,but as I can get access to db client could not
    another area to look is passwords and users go to advanced check the box so never expires
