Hi guyz,

I am implementing access rights on the shared folders. The folder is placed on our server where AD and server 2003 is installed. Now I have noticed that when I assigned the rights for a particular user It did not implemented on the same time and I have to go onto the user's machine and run the command "net user * /d" after that the access right for that particular user were implemented.

Please tell me why it’s happening and how to avoid this problem

it's about how AD replicates the authentication....if the user is logged on when you make changes to their permissions (file access or otherwise) then the local machine that the user is on doesn't know about it until it does a group/user policy refresh (i think it does it every 15 minutes to an hour)....usually when i make security setting changes i tell the target user to log off or restart their computer for it to take effect...
