Permissions not applying to all sub-folders

Hi,

We have a general share folder with multiple directories within it.  Some of these directories need specific users to have access and other not.  So I setup the permissions but sub-folders do not seem to inherit the permissions.  The folders show all the correct users and shows that it is inheriting it from the parent directory, but when you browse the folder it shows that it is empty.  The only way workaround I have it to set the permissions on the sub-folder itself.  But this issue continues, if that sub-folder has a sub-folder within it, the same issue is present.  I have check the "replace all existing inheritable permissions..." when applying.

any help would be appreciated and if this doesn't make sense then let me know.

my guess is you have ownership issues.....its a prick with 2008 server, i have noticed it loads throughout the last 12 months, you often have to take ownership to allow propogation to occur properly....real nightmare in big environments
