Hello World again. I have a particular issue where certain files and folders, cannot be access by users who have FULL permissions to them. I changed the owner to to the user, and replaced all the permissions on each child and etc. And still no access. I believe I may have to change these perms in safe mode but I do not want to take down our DC. Anyone every had these issues before?

Are your users trying to access these files over the network? Don't forget to set the share permissions as well as the NTFS security.

Are there any Deny entries in the security properties?  Those will always take precedence over Allow Entries.  Ex...if Domain Users are denied and that user is part of domain users it will still deny the user access even if its the owner or given full access separately.

Hello Guys, their are no denies. and the share perms are good. The only thing I noticed was that this occured after we setup DFS. This is kind of weird.

That was a great article but it does not really solve the problem. I wish we could have had this before we started.

I solved my own problem. DFS needed explict permissions setup in the Delegation manager for the user and or group you need to access the namespace.
