file system security / permissions

I recently changed the password complexity policy of my 2k3 domain controller to zero. This involved some manual editing of a couple of files as discussed in

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Q_20717879.html

this worked fine, the only trouble is that I'm now unable to edit the permissions for file shares even when I'm logged in as the domain admin, as the checkboxes appear greyed out in the mmc.

any suggestions anyone?

I doesn't seem to me that the two issues are related.

Can you create a new share and set the permissions using the explorer?

Hi James,

You were right, as I found out earlier today. For some reason the owner of the share was some obscure regisrty type string of characters, once I changed the owner back to domain admin everything worked fine.
