Folder and File Permissions: AD Security Group

Hi Guys,

I have a network folder shared between a group of users.
When I give permissions to the group on the network folder, the users can only see the folders, but are unable to open documents from the network shared folder.  "Access Denied".

However, when I give permissions to the user-accounts directly on the shared-folder, the users can access all containing files and sub-folders without a problem.

I must be doing something wrong in the group-setup ... It is setup as a global security group with all users added as members within the group.

Having a group with all members will make life much easier than to add each individual user account to the shared folders.

Is the user already a member of the group or are you adding the user to this group when you assign permissions? If you are adding the user to the group the user will need to logg off the computer then log back on before they get the new security token and can access the resource.

All users were assigned to the group.
I then assigned the rights to the shared-folder, and added the group to the permissions section of the folder - full control.

The user logged off / even restarted their W/S, but still "access denied".
However, when I add the user directly to the shared folder permissions, the user immediately has full rights.

So you are adding the users and groups to the share? What about the NTFS permissions?
Usually when I setup a share I will give either everyone or authenticated users full control of the share permissions and then restrict using NTFS permissions.

Thanks for your help, I think I found the problem,

Under the shared-folder security tab, advanced, edit
I added the group with full control rights, BUT I CHECKED the "apply these permissions to objects and/or containers within this containers only".

I am sure this was the problem, I added the group again and didn't checked the box, seems to be working now ...
