i have a folder. i have a group which has read permissions on this folder. this group has subgroups. some of these subgroups have subgroups. the subgroups, and their members, are somehow not inheriting the read permissions on the folder.

I have had this problem here @ our network.  It is not a great resolution, but for me it worked...I had to reboot the file server.  After I did this the permissions were applied.  I only did this after I was 100% confident that my permissions inheritance should have worked.  For some reason, the file server was not applying the changes in real time.  You may have to wait until off hours for this.  

Good luck.
