Afternoon all,

I am hoping someone can lead me in the right direction, I had made a post earlier on this topic but it was seemingly resolved. We had random permissions dissapearing and corruption messages, we ran chkdsk and this solved this.

But now the problem has surfaced again. since this morning random files have totally lost permissions, there is no security tab. if we look at previous versions for this morning the file is fine at that point (8am), does anyone have an idea what might cause this?

Have you tried logging in as the local admin and checking the ACLs?

It seems to me that since the security tab is disappearing there might be a GP problem that is hiding the security tab from you. The ACLs may or may not be intact, but your account cannot view them.

Yes. Tabs are not viewable on server or from client.

And this includes logging in as a local admin, not domain?

Sorry mad day! let me add a correction, tab is viewable on server but cannot do nothing as access is denied even taking ownership is out of the question. logged on locally now.. tab still viewable but same issue.

And are you logged in as the local admin?

Instead of domain\username you need to login to server\localAdmin

Try it that way or let me know if it was the same result that way.

Being a server... its sort of hard to recommend making changes, you might look at this for some ideas: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313222

Another idea would be using XCACLS to make changes across all directories, but you would need to be real careful not giving too much or too little. It would then be a good idea to go back through the directories after worlds and manually audit the ACLs.
