2003 Server Home directory permissions

Posted on 2004-11-23

I have a newly installed 2003 DC.  I can't get home folders to work properly.  
The folder in question is e:\Home
Share permissions:      Everyone - Full Control
Folder permissions:      Administrators - Full Control
                           %username% - Full control
Inheritance for subfolders is turned off

I create the users folder by assigning I: to \\servername\home\%username% to the home folder option on the profile in ADUC.

I want everyone to be able to see all of the subfolders of the Home Share folder but only be able to get into their specific subfolder.  Everything that I have tried gives everyone access to all the folders on the Home Share.

How do I stop the sub folder from inheriting the permissions from the root with out having to change every single sub folder?

    You don't.... You will need to go to the subfolders and then make sure to go to the advanced properties and clear the "inherit from parent the permission...."
