I have a sbs 2003 server, I have a shared folder with everyone having full controll, i have a bespoke database app that creates a file the end user has to download to update there calendar etc, so far so good.
When the file appears in the folder it does not take on the permissions from the shared folder even though the inherit permision settings is ticked.
If i reaply the permsiosns it works until the next time a file is put into the folder.
Any ideas folks.
Jon.

Go into the Security tab, Advanced button, and select the "Overwrite child folder permissions" (don't remember the exact name of the setting, but it's the other check box below the "Inherit" permission box.

No joy, It lets you do it the once again as beofre, then when the file reaperas after an update and you look the box is unticked and the file does not have the everyone permisions on?

Then this may go back to the old "copy/move" file permission inheritance (see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310316). Since you're placing a file in there from an app, that may be the culprit. Check with the app or the app vendor on file placement and permissions (I have a user at my org that had a similar problem with a custom app he uses).

Let me know what you find out...

Yeah...that's not good at all. :) I think that's something like what this program at my org did. Check with your app vendor on that.

test it by copying a file in the folder, as well as moving a file in the folder that is NOT from your app. If it works, then it HAS to be something in the app causing the problem.

how do you mean, copy a file from within the folder or copy a file to the folder from somewhere else.

take a file...any file, OTHER than a file created from your DB app, and copy it to the shared folder. Do the same thing with another file, but instead of copying it to the folder, MOVE the file to the folder. Check the permissions on those files inherited to see if they take on the permissions you set on the parent shared folder.

That is what should happen. So, it goes to reason that when the DB app places a file in that shared folder, the permissions do not get applied; thus, it is like "moving" a normal file. It seems you will have to place the permissions on the file. What you may have to do is have the DB place the file in a folder, then copy the file to the shared folder so it takes on the permissions you have set in the shared folder.
