User Profile Rights
Posted on 2005-04-13
We have an interesting problem. When a user first has his roaming profile created on the server, a directory is created that the user has ownership over. The administrator is given no rights whatsoever. In order to properly manage these folders, we need to add the administrator to the rights list, however, we have no right to do so. That leaves us with only the choice (as far as we can tell) to take ownership over the folder and then assign rights. Unfortunately, when we do that, the user can no longer use the folder until we give them rights. Clearly a bit of a mess.
Can anyone tell me if this is really the way windows 2003 is supposed to work and if so, how do you get around it?
