permission updating issue

I just gave 'modify' permissions to "\\server\groups\planning" for "domain\MyUser" from where he used to have none

However, the user can still not access the share. (it has been correctly mapped)

I've given it a few minutes and even rebooted the client, but he still is denied access.

How can I get these permissions to update without rebooting the server?

you have to give the user also the READ and EXECUTE permissions to be able to get the contents of the directory

Yes he has those, sorry

I meant I assigned all the rights that go with Modify: read & execute, list, read, write. (everything checked but "Full Control")

I'm not a administrator on the domain, but I should have rights to assign users to server shares.
(to add his account to a group that can access the share would take a domain admin)

I'm not getting any errors when I assign him access, but is it possible that my account has been altered in such a way that permissions won't take effect even though the "Properties>Security" tab of that share shows he has access?

I don't think their is a share conflict, as their is only these groups: admins, "Domain\GroupA" and "Domain\MyUser" (the latter is giving me trouble)

The share was assigned from the server, not remotely

Anything else I can check for?

[Webinar] Kill tickets & tabs using PowerShell

Are you tired of cycling through the same browser tabs everyday to close the same repetitive tickets? In this webinar JumpCloud will show how you can leverage RESTful APIs to build your own PowerShell modules to kill tickets & tabs using the PowerShell command Invoke-RestMethod.

Look at your "share" permissions not the "security" tab....remember that the most restrictive of the 2 will apply. Generally you give "everyone" full controll on the share permissions and then manage every thing through NTFS permissions but somtimes admins do this differetly and it can be confusing. Take a look there and see what you have.
