Problem setting windows permissions on Buffalo Linkstation pro duo - NAS

I'm having real trouble setting permissions with my new buffalo linkstation.

I have setup the device, given it a IP, added it to active directory and can see it in AD as a computer.

I have tried to set the permissions within the Buffalo admin page as it finds all my users and groups from ad.

Yet when i browse the file structure of the device as a mapped network drive it seems anyone can add anything to it or delete anything off it.

When you try and change the security settings within windows you go to add or remove users it just says access is denied.

Anyone have any ideas?

What kind of permissions are you trying assign?  If users have Modify permissions then they are able to add or delete.

Need some more information to offer a solution

Well im just assigning 2 groups for full control (domain admins & Programmers) these are groups in which i have created within AD.

But by default it has 'everyone' & 'domain admins' in the security tab but does not let me (domain admin) change the security setting from within windows at all!

Did you try changing the folder permissions through the devices interface (web interface).  You should be able to take those groups out. I am not familiar with this interface but sometimes there is an "inheret" check box that allows those groups to flow through automatically.

Be careful to not take everyone's rights (or even your own's) away by mistake. I use a rule of thumb to always allow the Domain Admins to prevent this type of scenario.

In the end I deleted all the permissions on the particular folder on the Linkstation by using the web interface, and then recreated the permissions again. Not quite sure why this didn't work in the first instance, as I added exactly the same permissions, but this has since worked fine.
