Permissions are not working.


We have a shared folder here and we setted up a new group.

The group was called XPTO, and we granted full permission to the folder COMMON.

However, they can access folder OMG but not folder COMMON, with the same permissions.

We already took ownership of the folder, and at the moment, XPTO has full permission under the folder, yet, not working.

Still, if we had any user on the group XPTO to the Company Users, they can access the share perfectly, but not in XPTO.

Hi tiagorferreira,

Check your share permissions? Post share and NTFS permissions for this group and folder. What exactly is not working?



Yes, you need to grant the Common folder everyone group read permissions (ON THE SHARE) and then it sounds like you should be good to go.



where is folder OMG located in relation to folder COMMON? If folder COMMON is within folder OMG, do as toniur suggested and check post the share AND NTFS permissions. Its possible that the COMMON folder is not inheriting NTFS permissions from the parent folder.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

OMG is located in E:

COMMON is located in F:

Both drives/shares do not inherit.

Meaning, in advanced, the only option is replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects.
