Deny user access to local disk


A

Andrew Dunford

Hi

I have a network as follows:

Win2K server with Domain
XP workstations

Users log on to the domain from the workstations (there are no local
accounts). On one workstation that has two local hard disks I wish to deny
a user access to one of those disks, but have been unable to find out how to
go about it. Sounds simple enough...

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

The disk needs to be formatted NTFS. From there it's standard
permissions stuff -- right click on the disk in Explorer go for
properties, select the Security tab and add an entry for the user you
want to block that denies everything.

Thanks for the response.

The reason I was querying was that from the Security tab in Explorer I was
unable to get access to domain users. This turns out to have been a DNS
problem - the workstations didn't have the DNS of the domain controller.

Thanks again for your help.
