The permissions on <folder> are incorrectly ordered

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.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

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

And yes server logs can be useful in these cases

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.

It's a known issue that the hotfix was designed for Vista\Server 2008

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
