I am trying to find a detailed lists of steps required to configure a new FTP server using Active Directory Integrated mode.  Specifically, I need the steps to define a restricted domain group that will only be allowed to access the FTP server directories and no other domain resources.  The list of steps for configuring SBS has been provided here...

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Web_Servers/Microsoft_IIS/Q_22832264.html?

... but I need the same steps for Windows Server 2003 and they're clearly not the same.  I'm not that familiar with Group Policy Objects or Security Templates so I'm looking for some clear guidance on what needs to be done.

Any help would be greatly appeciated!  Thank you!

Thanks Jeff!

I've already read that article and it helped me get started, but it's not really what I'm looking for.  I need to know how to restrict a group of users (remote FTP users) from accessing any other domain resources except the FTP directories.  My understanding is that Active Directory Integrated limits FTP users to only their defined FTP directory but it does not limit them from logging into another computer on the domain and using other resources.  The members of my 'Remote FTP Users' group must be prevented from all domain resources except the individual FTP directory that they will be assigned via AD Integrated FTP.  

Step 2 in this topic...

...explains exactly what needs to be done for SBS, but I need the steps for Windows Server 2003.

Thanks,
Steve

That's covered in detail in the article I linked for you. It's called FTP User Isolation and the methods to configure that as described in the article are exactly what you are looking for.
