Unable to replace permission entries on all child objects
Posted on 2007-11-16
I have been asked to restrict access to a sub-folder of a shared network folder so that I have the following permissions:
Domain Admins - Full Control
Domain Users - Read & Execute
ManagerA - Full Control
ManagerB - Full Control
The root of the shared network folder is a bit of mess, with lots of named individuals and various groups with all sorts of different permissions. I am not allowed to clean that up, or to move the sub-folder.
I have done the following:
Right clicked the sub-folder, selected Sharing and Security, clicked the Security tab, select Advanced, unchecked "Allow inheritable permissions...", clicked Apply and selected Remove to take away all of the existing permissions underneath.
That bit works okay. Now I put the permissions I want on the sub-folder in question. That bit also works okay. Now I want to propogate those permissions to all of the sub-folders and files.
I Right click the sub-folder, select Sharing and Security, click the Security tab, select Advanced, check "Replace permission entries...", click Apply and then receive several "Access is denied" messages for specific files in the file structure.
I pick one of the problem files in questions, locate it, select Properties, Security. It says "You do not have permissions to view or edit the current permission". I then select Advanced, click Owner, then click to take ownership of the file but receive the message: "Unable to set new owner on file
There is not enough space on the disk."
There is plenty of space of the disk (several gigabytes), and there are no disk quotas set on the disk or the share.
Why am I getting this error message?
