I have tried to use Disk Utility to reset folder permissions on our backup disk and folder shares, but the button is disabled.
I also tried to change all the permissions through the get info, but i get a notification of needed permissions to change all the privileges, thats even when i am logged in as an administrator.

How can i reset the folder permissions?

If you are using an xServe, all of your permission changes needs to be accomplished via your server management app>Appleshare Services

It is just a Mac Pro G5 with Mac OS X 10.4 Server installed.
I have found out to apply ACL to the drive, but when i add the users/groups it won't be inherited to the child folders.

I can access the parent folder over the network, but the access to all the sub folders is denied.

IT doesn't Matter, you are still running server.  When running server you MUST use the Server mgmt app to manage all directory POSIX and ACL permissions.

Okay, I tried to search for Server Mangement Application but didn't came up. I use the Workgroup Manager to declare the permission, i have made some screen dumps.

Sorry I had a brain fart.  Yes workgroup manager is what I meant.  You see that little cog wheel in the bottom right corner?  Click on it and a menu will appear.  For here you can recursively apply permissions to all sub directories and files.
