SBS 2003 security group permissions not working for folder
Posted on 2006-06-15
Inherited SBS 2003.
Created own OU's not using 'My Business'.... ones created by default.
Have one folder with a couple of excel files in it. I want to restrict the folder so only 5 users can read/write and all other users read-only.
Folder name: ABC
Group 1: Global Read Only Group
Group 2; Global Write Group
5 users in Group2 and all other users in Group1
Security Permissions: Administrators - full, Group1 - Read, Deny Write , Group 2 - Read/write
Any user I add to either Group does absolutely nothing. Example, I add User1 to Group1 and I can still open, write, delete, create, everything. If I remove all groups from security permissions and only leave Administrators, anyone can access the folder and open/read/write/delete.
If add User1 explicitly to the security permissions, it works.
I have removed setting Inherite Permissions from parent folder. I have tried 4 different user accounts. Owner of file is administrator.
