Frontpage modifing permissions.

We have a 2000 webserver and some clients are having problem. The issue is that frontapge is controlling the permissions and tighting the permissions to:


Network - List Folder Contents
Network Service - List Folder Contents
Interactive – List Folder Contents
OWS_<suffix> - List and special permissions according to role.
Internet Guest Account – List Folder Contents


The problem is with these permissions users can not use the file scripting object. The only time I have been able to duplicate this is to use the tools-> server -> permissions , when the page comes up go to administration -> server health. I then have to click repair on tighten security.


Does anyone know of any other issues that would cause this, and is there a way to prevent this?

The server is windows 2000 service pack4 with FPSE (2002).

Hi,

Did you install the latest extension AFTER installing Pack4?

Yes the extensions were installed after service pack 4. We setup the server and then add all patches for the webserver itself before we install extra components.
