Tips on file server security
Posted on 2009-05-19
One of my customers (150 users; all Windows 2003 servers) wants to create a new folder structure and security structure on it's fileserver. unfortunatly they want to have permissions on a top level folder, and different permissions on subfolders. Something like:
Folder (Permissions: Everyone full Control)
- Subfolder 1 (Permissions: John: Full, Mary: Read, Steve: List content)
- Subfolder 1-1 (Permissions: Steve: Full, John; read, Mary: Read)
etc etc. etc.
This of course will lead to a lot of headache. Untill now I havn't been able to convince them that this is not the right approach. I've been googling on some good documents on how one should setup permissions on a fileserver, But havn't been able to find a good one. Anyone here has a good link ?
