I created a new folder on a Windows 2008 file server and tried to change permissions, but as soon as I clicked on the security tab on the properties, I get the following message:

The permissions on <folder> are incorrectly ordered, which may cause some entries to be ineffective. I tried deleting the folder and recreating it, but same problem.

Have you looked at this  hotfix information supplied here

http://support.microsoft.com/hotfix/KBHotfix.aspx?kbnum=971271&kbln=en-us

Suggests it is for Vista only. Windows Vista and Windows server 2008 share the same code, the hotfix should work, i have seen it very often that it works fine

Does it require a reboot?

If it's a hotfix then it does not require a reboot.

I would try a re-boot if you can do it there may be some things that it will fix during that process

I am not sure if the Hot fix gave me this functionality or if it was there and I just needed to do it, but it is now working. When I clicked on the security tab in the properties window, I got the same message and clicked on the OK button, which lets me see who has access. I then clicked on the Advanced button, which game me the same message and I clicked on the OK button to acknowledge it. Then I clicked ont he Edit button and I got a 'Reorder' button. I click on that and everything is back to normal.

If you guys can let me know if this fuctionaliy is a result of the hotfix then I will assign out the points. I have never seen this before so I don't know if it works this way without the hotfix or not.
