We have just had an issue arise when we began installing Win2k3 Server R2 SP2. We setup server for dental offices and all of our servers are always setup the same. Recently when we began installing 2k3 server r2 sp2 we began receiving some wierd permission related issues. The dental software will create a file .txt, .xml, etc and once it is created it is read only. The permissions are setup properly on the directories, each user is an admin on the domain and a local admin on the workstation. Any suggestions? Is there a utility the will take a directory and reset the permissions. I don't think the permissions are correct even though windows says they are.
