I have a shared folder called "QMS" on 2003 Enterprise. I want everyone can access but no writing in this folder.

There are a few subfolders under "QMS" called "Forms", "WIs", and "Records". There are several folders under "Records" for different departments "Sales", IT.  I want to setup everyone can access "Forms", "WIs" and "Records" but can not write. I want Sales group can have full control on "Sales" and IT group have full control on "IT".

I need to set up subfolders under "Sales" and only a user can have full control on a folder.

What is the best practice for setting this?

Thanks,

Turn off inherit permissions on the "QMS" folder and all subfolders (apply the changes to all subfolders to make that easiest to start from).  Then apply your permissions for each subfolder, one at a time, with the permissions you want for each subfolder.

GCD1: Thank you very much for the answer. My following up questions are 1. "How about the override of permission for folders and their subfolders?"
2. "Only "QMS" is shared, do I set up share permission only on "QMS"?". 3.  "setup Subfolders only under "Security"?"

Thank you.

The only way you would want to override permissions is if the permissions for all files and folders underneath the given folder should have the same permissions.  I think you will find it easiest to not override permissions and to just make sure you specify permissions on each folder independently.

You will not need to alter the share permissions on anything except the root folder.  Just make sure that everyone that will need access to sub folders at least has read access on the share permissions to the share itself or else they won't even be able to get to it, and then you will adjust further permissions on the Security tab.

Obviously you will want to test all of this but you will find permissions can be difficult to figure out at times.

If the is no write permission set on the share folder for one group, can I set any subfolder with write permission for that group?

Thanks.

Yes, I believe you can do that, but I would test it beforehand to make sure.
