A process needs to access a folder and needs to have permissions on it. I want to limit the access only to that folder on a 2003 Domain Controller.
Watch Question

What kind of process?

Generally, you would need to setup a folder share and assign appropriate share level and NTFS level permissions to that folder.  Next, have the process/service run as that user.

It's better if you create a group and assign the folder share and NTFS permissions to the group and add the user to the group.
I didn't get what I am expecting for the question and would like to close it
