random filesharing behaviour
« on: October 29, 2023, 11:20:52 am »
I am installing a 7.1 Zentyal server as DC and gateway. About 30 users en a dozen shares. The clients are all freshly installed updated Win 10 pro.
I first configured the groups and then assigned the users to the groups and the groups to the shares.
This normally is pretty straight forward.
But now I have the weirdest behavior that some clients can't access the shares, even if I assign them to the user.
It seems so random. It is user related as far as I can find. (same computer, logged in on a different account can access said share, same user on an other computer still can't access the share. But since it is so random, it might be a coincidence) )
So the clients are joining the domain just fine (except one account that could log in, but after login got the message the user couldn't be logged in properly and should try to log out and in again).
They see the server and the shares but when I open them, you get the popup for other credentials, or Windows can't even find the share anymore but it is still in the list on the client.
I made some shares again in an other name, and that worked most of the times. Some shares just work as expected.
So one user can open the share, some don't. Even thought the accounts are set up exactly the same as far as I can tell.
Some possible red herrings
1. Under windows the shares seem about 90Gb even though I installed the server on a 8Tb disk and I choose "use whole disk".
2. During the install I wanted to make a share with guest access then I got the message I needed to enable the guest user.
Then I went to said guest user, and the disable option was marked but greyed out.
I went back to the share to disable the guest access, but the share still has guest access and I still see the message that I need to enable the guestuser.

I don't even know where I should start looking.
Is there some maximum amount of users to a share?
And what is supposed to happen when you have the default 500Mb limit and want to access a 7Gb share?
Any feedback where I should start would help.
Thanks in advance.
