changing folder permissions sbs 2003

hello

i have a database running on sbs 2003 that has suddenly stopped working.  the database wass working on friday and had stopped on monday.  over the weekend sbs 2003 downloaded a large number of updates.

at the moment i think i will have to try and uninstall all of the updates (around 60).  although i have been talking to someone about the database and they think it might simply be that folder permissions have changed.

i have found the folder i think is causing the problem and right clicked on it to check the security however it look like all profiles have full permission to that folder.

Is there anywhere else where permissions may have been changed that i should look at?



thank you for any help

If your folder has all the user permissions it can be accessed from user/client pc.
Try to open that folder from server not from my computer but from server ip (ie. Start -> Run -> \\192.168.1.1\foldername), like we access it in a network, then try to access it from user/client pc.

Select Allow inheritable permissions from... available in Advanced in Security Tab. Also try by changing its permission from Advanced in Security tab. One more thing you should perform is to change owner of that folder which is also available in Advanced in Security tab, for that select Administrator and click on replace owner on sub-containers & objects.

If you are not succeeded make a normal user administrator then check whether you are able to open it or not. if so, you have some conflicts in permissions.
