Shared folder permission issue on Windows 2008
Posted on 2009-02-18
I have an existing Windows 2003 domain. We just recently added our first Windows 2008 Domain Controller to the domain. I log into the new server with the account test.admin, which is a member of the Domain Admins group. I create a folder named "test", and then go into the security settings for this folder. I remove inheritable permissions, so permissions area is completely blank. I then add "Domain Admins" and give it full control. I also add "Administrators" and give that full control as well. I apply, hit okay and close out of the properties window.
At this point, if I try to access the folder I receive the following error message: "You don't currently have permissions to access this folder. Click Continue to get access to this folder."
Clicking continue adds test.admin with read and view permissions onto the folder, and then it opens. Clicking cancel and nothing further happens.
What is going on? These exact permissions work on 2k3 servers, and I clearly should have access rights since Domain Admins has full control.
