I Have created some Domain Users in my AD and Using that Domain Users A/c , i logged into client successfully and works some documenets,create some folders etc and saved it in my Local Hard drive( D: or E:) ..
Recently I Puchared one Server PC and Intall New Windows 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition and promote it as DC.. my Domain name is

Now i successfully remove clients from my old domain( and Successfully joined my clients to new DC( Here i created some domain users...

The problem is when i logon with domain users in my client, I can open the local hard disk drive but i can't able to save any new thing in it and as well as can't able to edit my old files and folders (which are created using domain users)... i can able to save the files,only in users profiles path like My docmuemts and Desktop...

I open my NTFS properties of Clients Local Drive .. All settings are in disabled statge due to limited users account but everyone users are not check any permission...

i logged into clients by using Domain Administrator account and Change the Everyone Permission of Local Drive as Full Control and now i can able to save new things or edit my old things in my local drive .... The problem is sloved..

Mmmm. Am I missing something or is this really a Windows question in > Forums > Linux Forums > Linux - Server?

I suspect you can use domain policies to do what you want.
