How do I secure sensitive files on the file server / File Server best practice
Posted on 2009-05-08
I have recently built a file server on a Dell PowerEdge 2950. The OS is Windows 2003 R2. I have set up folders and mapped them on the individual PCs. In future we plan to install WSS 3.0 for collaboration, but not now. I have set the permissions on folders on the server using the standard file security in the OS. Now the Head of Departments are very sceptical - rightly so, of putting there files on the file server. An example is the HR Manager putting files such as Salary Scales, etc. Not all Administrators should be able to see these files or be able to take ownership of the folder and give themselves rights. What are the best practices for file-server access?
