Hi


I'm having bit of trouble understanding some mcse study question..

Q1) Basically what's the difference, in permission settings between (a) and (b): -

a) Allow inertiable permissions from the parent to propagate to this object and all child objects. Include these with entries explicity defiened here

b) Replace permission enteries on all child objects with enteries shown here that apply to child objects

2) When would you use each one?

You would use b) if you want to modify permissions for a subtree and it's decendents.

If you are glad with (default) settings taken from the parent use a)

Of cause you can mix boths until no one knows what permissions are valid on a longer path to the deepest folder.

Keep on thing in mind: these permission settings are applied once, if you move a folder / file to a hand-crafted-folder, the old permissions on that folder are still active.

E.g. you move folder B - that allows just r/o for anyone to a folder A with full r/w for anyone - folder B is still just r/o (same with a file)
