How to let a super-user set permissions on directory's within a share without being a administrator

Hello,

I have some people (local company PC-support people) at remote locations who need to set rights on directory's.
These peope have no control over the servers (are not administrators). They cannot logon to the servers as well (on the console).

I would think I give them 'Full control' on a directory and then he/she would be able to add/remove users/groups within that directory's (on a given share).
However, the options to modify rigths on a directory remain grey. Is it even possible to do this or must you be admin to set rights on directorys. Or perhaps there is a other group they need to belong too ?

This is on a W2003 Server with NTFS disks.

regards
W

Hi vanleeuwen,
be sure to have checked noy only NTFS permissions, but also share permissions: if they do not have Full Control share permissions, they cannot change them, no matter what NTFS permissions say.

I aggree for a user to be able to modify permissions, they would have to have FULL CONTROL on the SHARE and FULL CONTROL on the NTFS permissions.

They will need FULL SHARE Permissions but as far as NTFS goes on the advanced screen all they need is read and modify permissions set to allow.
