hi friends,

i have created a folder called "Userhome". Each user has its own named folder which i have shared as username$ and gave full access rights. in the security tab, each user has "full control" to his folder.

strangely, i can map the share as FS1\userhome\username$        and the user can see all folders get listed. but he cannot access them.

anyone an idea whats wrong?

What are the share prmissions you have created?

You mention you have set the NTFS permissions, but what about the share permissions?

Ensure your users atleast have "Change" share permissions.

On the the share permissions. I always set the share permissions to full control and let the NTFS permissions handle the rest.

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Does the Everyone group on the share havs "Full Control" permissions?

Can you list out the permissions or show some screen shots.
  • The properties of your shared permissions
  • The properties of the NTFS permissions on a user directory

only the user has full control to his own folder.

I would force the ownership on all child objects:

Right Click > Properties > Security > Advanced > Owner Tab > Select owner and check "Replace owner on all subcontainers" > Click OK

Then I would force NTFS permissions on all child objects too:

Right Click > Properties > Security > Ensure user has full control of object > Advanced > Check "Replace permission entries on all child objects" > Click OK
