Mimic NDS file permissions in Windows NTFS environment
Posted on 2008-06-18
I am trying to mimic Novell NDS file permissions on a windows NTFS box.
Here is the basic problem:
I have a share named Vol2 which consists of multiple directories that contain thousands of subfolders.
In Novell I can grant read access to Grandchild 1 and the user is automatically given traversal access to Child1. In Windows this does not occur. If I give access to Grandchild1 the user is not give access to child1.
For a few nested directories this is not an issue but when nesting reaches 10 folders deep it becomes an issue.
Is there a proper way to mimic the NDS rights in a Windows environment or a best practices method of doing this?
Note: I cannot simply create new shares b\c users have files with embedded links that rely on specific shares and directory paths.
