  • folder properties in external drive

    Hey guys, Im kinda puzzled with this one. Sbs 2003 didnt have this behavior.
    The thing is that Im trying to put some domain users in certain folders in an external drive. Sadly, in locations, I dont have the domain to choose.


    I have read that it could be that the dns is not properly setup but its not the case:


    thanks for any hint guys.

    i'm going to suggest that the \\Lacie device is not a member of the domain, ergo, you cannot add domain security principals to it.

      Is the screenshot from your DC -- if not, something very wrong with the DNS address you are using

      Ditto on tehcamel -- if LACIE is a NAS device, it will almost certainly not be a domain member so cannot have domain security. Check its web management console for security options (and tell us the model so someone who has one can confirm)

          Hi guys, thanks for your hints. Its a NAS device. So I believe I would have to admin it from the console it provides. In sbs 2003, the attached external device its usb, thats why I could put it under the domain.
          That clarifies things.
          Thanks guys

            Correct -- USB devices are local so will pick up security from the host. NAS devices are separate -- some higher end ones may have integrated domain security, but most don't
