can't propagate permissions down in windows server 2003

I am having a problem getting folder permissions (ntfs) to propagate down to child folders in W2K3.  On the console, I check the box that says "Replace permission entries on all child objects with the entries shown here that apply to child objects," but the permissions do not propagate down to subfolders.  the other option, "Allow inheritabl permissions from the parent to propagate to this object and all child objects.  Include these with entries explicitly defined here"  is also checked.

I have tried this from the local box and from another machine and it does not propagate the permissions and gives no errors.

This is W2K3 R2 sp2 with all updates applied.  How can I get the permissions to propagate down to all the subfolders without going into each one?  What am I missing?

Thanks for any help,

Maureen

go to the root folder , remove all permissions , then add required permission . make sure you do not select inherit from parent

I did that it still did not work.  I ended just changing the permissions manually on the folders that it didn't change.  

It seemed to randomly not propagate the permissions to some folders while others it did no problem.
