Windows 2008 / NTFS file permissions don't propagate/descent to all child folders
Posted on 2009-02-23
Recently we attached a iscsi taget from a different forest to a new and clean windows 2008 domain and are using the data in our production environment, but are having problems with the file rights that must propagate/descent to all child folders and files, also when replacing owner and file rights on all child nodes.. (ehhh folders and files)
CorpData -> Engineering -> Mechanical
|-> CAD -> Test -- file.txt
|-> file2.txt (in mechanical folder)
When setting/replacing (to all childs, no inheritance) permissions on the mechanical folder (folder, subfolders and files), it doesn't replace all rights on its childs. (this folders , subfolders, subfolders? and/or files)
In this example, only the CAD folder and file2.txt has the new rights and the CAD folder does not pass it on to Test because the rights on CAD now have the attribute "This folder only", and initialy it was set as "This folder, Subfolders and files"
when i check the Test folder it says, inheritance is ON from its parent.
How to make it the permissions go all the way to the end of the nodes/childs?
Is this a bug, bad files system, windows 2008 functionality?
I just dont get it and don't want to do all files and folders by hand this way...
