NTFS Permissions disappear/reset overnight on WIN 2000 Server
Posted on 2005-03-10
I am running WIN 2000 AD and on one of my servers I have added permissions to a folder
(C:\Program Files\Blue Ocean Software) and then the next morning they disappear. I created and added a global group and gave it Full Control, I clicked on advanced and chose both "Inherit from parent...” and "Replace permissions entries on all child...". This has been happening for 3 weeks, every day I add the group and the next mooring the permissions I added the day before are gone. This also happens if I add individual user accounts so it is not specific to the Global Group. The server is Windows 2000 with SP4 and it is running SQL 2000 and Project Server 2003 as well. Nothing out of the ordinary in the event logs. I called the Blue Ocean Software vendor and they have no idea what is happening.
