Adobe Contribute CS4 - rights to individual folders issue with changeover from Netware on Novell server to MS Windows 2008 -R2 server
Community College website manages content with over 100 pagemasters. Using Novell, rights were assigned at a particular folder level in the website. College is switching from Apache server running Netware to Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 server. It looks like we have to assign all user rights at the highest level. We are not purchasing Adobe Publishing Server. Any other workarounds to assign user roles at lower level folders? We lose Novell and all pagemaster connections on November 30.

With a Netware server (NSS Filesystem) any trustees assigned to lower level folders give automatic traverse rights to higher folders. With a Windows server (NTFS filesystem) you will have to assign the traverse rights manually yourself.

For instance, see the following structure:

-- Departments -+---Finance
                          +-- IT

In Netware you give the Finance group rights to the Finance folder, and the IT group rights to the IT folder, and they both can see and travers the Departments folder.
On a windows server you will have to give both groups read and traverse rights on the Departments folder.  (special rights including  Traverse folder + List Folder + Read Attributes + Read Extended Attributes + Read Permissions)

What you can do also is to create one "Traverse" group with the Traverse rights to the Departments folder, and add all users of Finance and IT to that group, or add the Finance and IT Groups to that "Traverse" group
