NTFS Shares (wrong)


9 posts in this topic

Posted

It's all going wrong today.

I have a folder called test on a domain,

If I go \\server\test from a NON domain computer, I can create, modify and delete the contents of the folder, how is that possible when the only permissions for the folder is System & Administrators

This is rather annoying me as I don't know whats going on, as it should give me the big F OFF!

Any ideas?

The folder isn't shared I'm accessing it by typing in \\servername\g$\test and the folder permissions are system & administrators, on full permission

You must've used credentials that have rights to access and modify the hidden share.

Well G$ is an admin share. So either one of two things is going one

1: Your user account on the local system has credentials that match a domain admin account, or has saved credentials.

2: Your default admin shares on the server have different security permissions then default. Which I think is setup in GPO.

One of the first things I done was check out the credentials vault on my windows 7 PC, but I deleted them all, but can still access it.

I wouldn't know where to go for the default admin share permissions in GPO, so I wouldn't of changed it.

Just noticed when going onto my other server I get a login box, even if I just do \\servername so it's something odd with the other one

Tricky eh!

As soon as you put your computer on the domain network your local hard drives get shared with a $...c$ d$ e$ etc. you will not see these shares simply by browsing to them. anything with a $ at the end of them is a hidden/non published share. To be able to access these admin shares you need to be a domain admin by default unless you messed with the security.

If you are connecting to test that isn't a default share. We would need to have a screen shot of the security tab on test to be able to further diagnose. You probably have anon user listed in there or everyone and have given full/modify access to either of them. If you want I can remote in and poke around so you can see what is going on.

Sounds like you've applied permissions to the share (\\server\test) as opposed to the folder (\\servername\g$\test).

Right-click on the folder, Properties, then the Security tab. Set your permissions there--not the Sharing tab.

Either that, or disable admin shares. That way you won't be able to access \\servername\g$ to begin with.

Found out the problem was due to the fact I had a mapped drive to the server, and I saved my credentials (which couldn't be found anywhere) so I used "net use * /delete" this cleared all my mapped drives, then when I went back into \\servername I got the loigin prmpt then, I then saved my credentials and it's now in the vault, very odd!
