Microsoft Server 2003 Active Directory Permissions Issue
Posted on 2011-03-16
I have a user in active directory on our Microsoft Server 2003 domain controller that I am having a permissions issue with.
I need the user to inherit permissions from the domain controller, so I go into the users account, click the security tab, click the advanced button, and Check the box that says "Allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propagate to this object and all child objects" When I do that and hit the apply button the permissions that i need appear in the window above and tell me they are inherited from the domain controller.
So its all good and fine, but then, whenever the domain controller does an update, it automatically REMOVES the check mark from the box and the inherited permissions disappear.
The only thing that I have read that might cause this is if the user is a member of a Microsoft designated "protected group." Problem is, this user isn't a member of any protected groups. Only Domain Users and a group for the department hes in within the company. And all the other people that are in that department group have the same box checked in their accounts and it stays there.
What else could be turning off the inherit permissions for this user account?
