Permissions problems on Windows 2003 SBS server
Posted on 2007-07-24
I already submitted this question and I guess it got lost in the ensuing E-Mail verification. My question is regarding the permissions on folders and files on the Windows 2003 SBS server of which I have one only a few months old. I recently updated it to service pack 2 for the server which I understand may have addressed some NTFS permissions issues. Recently, within this past week, I am having difficulty with permissions set on the upper level of folders and files not propogating like it should down to nested folders and files within that chain. Specifically i can reset the permissions on the uppder level folder and the nested folders and files will not show that permission and in fact will give us an "Access Denied" message for the individual folders and or files underneath. This does not seem to occur with all folders and files under the top level folder, it is an intermittent occurrence with only certian of the folders and or files within that folder chain. And in fact when I try to reset the permissions at the upper level, the system kicks out certain folders and files claiming that there is insufficient disk space to accomplish the task. This is not true as I have approximately 300 plus GB out of the original 400 GB left as free disk space. If you have experienced anything related to this problem / issue, I would appreciate heraing about it. Also if you have determinded a repair / fix for the issue or a related one either on your own or through microsoft, I would apreciate hearing about it. Thank you in advance for your consideration and expertise in this matter.
