  • Cannot configure security on file server using AD groups

    I am trying to configure security on file server but cannot see groups from AD ( I was able to see them before but now I cannot). I can only see built in groups. For some reason there is some communication problem between DC and File server. I can log on to server without any problem.

    when I try to access share from local network I can connect to the share and in event viewer I can see what user tried to connect to the share.
    but
    when I try to connect to share from remote office (trust between domain A and B), first I use to get error , log on server not available to service request and in the event viewer it logs that anonymous user tried to access the share. for some reason log on server error is gone but I can still not configure security using AD groups

    I ran nltest to reset secure channel.

    what else can I do to fix the issue?

    what If I re-join server to domain, will I loose my security settings

    Is the NETLOGON service running on the file server?

      Hi,

      1. Rejoining will not effect any security configuration......

      2. Just check from which DC the server is getting authenticated? (c:\set l)

      3. Go to run and type "\\domain FQDN" and see if you can access Netlogon and Sysvol folder.

        If a firewall is there between File Server & Domain Controllers, check all Domain Ports.
        Check that GC is reachable from File Server
