- Subject: messed up user permissions from w2k terminal session
I'm not sure how I did it but I messed up my user permissions or local
policy settings. Now whenever I run any cygwin app (bash.exe, wc.exe,
rxvt.exe) from a w2k terminal session and logged in as a user, I see the
**** CreateFileMapping, Win32 error 5. Terminating.
I'm running Windows 2000 SP4 and CYGWIN = binmode tty ntsec
More specific details....
If I am logged into the console I can run any cygwin apps. When I log in
remotely to the server through ssh, everything is fine. The only time a
problem occurs is when I login through a terminal server client using an
account other than "Administrator". The administrator account doesn't
experience problem. A user account belonging in the Administrators group does.
I am at a loss trying to figure out which policy/permission was changed to
cause this problem.
I've been google'ing for a few days trying to track down what might have
changed but to no avail.
Any hints on troubleshooting errors like this or an idea as to what
permission/policy is needed for "CreateFileMapping", would be appreciated.
If a cygcheck would be helpful let me know and I will send one.
