Windows 2003 server permissions
Posted on 2007-03-27
I have applied the following Permission structure(yes this has been posted several times before).
As *share* permissons, give the Everyone group Full Access.
For the time being, create four local groups on the file server hosting the share (if your domain is running in Windows 2000 native mode or higher, you can create domain local groups as well):
Change the permissions, first the WHC folder:
In this folder, give (local) Administrators and the System account Full permissions, and give the L-WHC-C group Change permissions; replace the permissions on child objects.
On the "Finance" subfolders of each folder, go the Advanced security tab, uncheck "Inherit permissions", check "Replace permissions", and copy the current permissions when asked. Remove the L-WHC-C group, add the L-xxxx-Fin-C group with Change permissions, leave Administrators and System with Full Access.
Create two global groups, G-Role1 and G-Role; Role1 for users with no access to the Finance folder, Role2 for users with access to all folders; you can use existing groups if they contain the correct users, and you can of course name them according to the roles the users have.
Add the G-Role1 group to the L-WHC-C group only.
Add the G-Role2 group to the L-WHC-C group and the L-xxxx-Fin groups.
Finally, add all users with no access to the finance group to the G-Role1 group, add all users with access to the finance folder as well to the G-Role2 folder.
From then on, you only need to add users to the respective global groups to give them permissions on the folders they need.
My problem is I have 3 users in the G-Role2, 1 user can open the files in Financial folder, the other 2 are still Read-Only Access, Why?
1) How or why is that all 3 are in the same group, but only 1 has access?
2) When this FINALLY works, how do you set the Financial folder so that restricted users have NO access, so they can not even VIEW files? Right now they have Read-Only. I want them BLOCKED.
