Share permissions

I have the following exmaple

A share is created.

Users report the get "Access is denied" when they try to add/create files or folders in the share

You need to cinfugure the share so

1) Domian users can create/add files and folders
2) Domian users shouldn't be able to change NTFS perms on the files or folders they create or add
3) Domain users must receive the minimum level of required permissions


There is a diagram of share permissions dialog box with only the everyone group, with no share perms selcted.

From what they said, i would have just chosen "Change" for the Everyone group.

However, they answer with the Everyone group havingm "Change" AND "Read"

So my question is

Why do they need Read, if they have change ??

Or is it just a mistake, or am i missing something from their requirents

Where are you looking at this diagram?

Which server are you using?  In 2003 the shared permissions by default are read only.  The permissions are additive in which if you select change then read is automatically selected.  A user can't change something they can't read.

Shared permissions are pretty blunt, and you will use the NTFS permissions to fine tune what kind of security you want on a folder.

"The permissions are additive in which if you select change then read is automatically selected.  A user can't change something they can't read."
