2003 server: Users/File Sharing/Security Questions
Posted on 2004-11-17
I have the server setup.. made a share called "share" and put a few folders in it (one for each dept), copied about 1/2 the folders over..
I assume i could now just control who accesses what by assigning users rights to the folders. However, when i go into security on the folders, i want to just give one user control, so i add then, then i take out the group "users" (which is everyone), but it won't let take that group out. so i thought i could just deny the group users, and give the users I want to have access control. But now it says that if the user i give control is in the group "users" (which they of course area), they too will be denied..
So what am i doing wrong? Should users not be a memeber of the group users? Why can't i remove the group users from the security settings for the files? how do i go about just letting one or 2 users have full control on the folder, and everyone else can't even access it. (total access denied for them).
also what group (beside the ones i create) should my users be members of. Seeing they are automatically in the group domain users and users. and some other odd ones..
all a bit conjfusing to me.
