    Hi yuris

    Sorry to ask this, but were you logged in as THE ADMINISTRATOR or just another account with administrator rights?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    I have been trying to change the delete permissions with the administrator account.

    Is there a problem using the administrator account?

    i know for security reasons that i should change the adminstrator user, to something else

    Does this person know the administrator password???

    Take her account and move it into a domain users group...this should remove her from...
    Physically logging into the server locally...and having access to system files...depending on your setup

    If you cannot change the permissions...take ownership of the files...

    You can then give access as needed.

    Heres an article from MS..may help a bit

    I would also change your admin password ...just to be sure

    Thank god for backups....they have saved my ass many times

    Good luck

    There's no problem with YOU using it
    sometimes the administrator account is the better option when cleaning up, as it has all the relevent permissions by default, and even though you MAY have admin rights, there could be a conflict / denial in there.

    Does this person know the administrator password???
    If so, then you can do whatever you want, it will be to no avail. Change it NOW, on your OWN initiative ............. THEN you will see WHO calls to say "Hey! I cannot logon"

    She is already on Domain Users group. Im sure that she doesn't have the administrator password. i audit all logon, and the administrator logins matches with mines, beside the admin password its quite big and complicated.
    Im going look for a monitor tool, to log every changes on the system.
    Something like Tripewire for linux

    Re: missing files

    Greetings,

    If the files are lost I can say it is possible to restore files, even if they were erased. If the data is important for you, you can perform this operation. Speaking about me, I used Undelete utility to recover lost files, and it worked perfectly. If you wish, you can also try it out.

    Ok... we do not bring up old threads without a good reason.


    Triangle, since this is your first post, I am not going to directly call you a dumbass, but feel free to infer that sentiment from this statement.
