I have created a shared folder on a D:\Data drive. I have shared it for select users. One user who is a domain admin connects to the folder from his workstation and tries to change the permissions for that folder but the permissions are grayed out. He is a domain admin, should he be able to change permissions from anywhere. The directory is located on a Windows SBS 2008 domain. Any help would be appreciated.

Check the SHARE and NTFS permissions, the user MUST have full control on the share to be able to change the NTFS permissions.
