Changing NTFS permissions on Roaming share
Posted on 2011-03-23
So I have inherited this network from another service company and it appears that the former admin didn't really understand group policy and NTFS permissions when it came to roaming profiles and such.
There is an existing GPO in place that points the terminal server profiles to this share. The profiles under this top share are all messed up as far as NTFS permissions go. Most profiles are not inheriting, the whole thing is just broken. My plan is to modify the actual profile share, with the proper settings, and push the settings down. Will this have any negative effect on the existing profiles? I have never had to correct something quite like this before.
Once I fix this I want to enable folder redirection for documents and desktop most likely. This part I'm not really concerned with. It's the first part of changing so many permissions on the profile share level. I can't afford to destroy everyone's profiles.
Does anyone see any problems with doing this?
The users are gettings errors when logging on sometimes about loading profiles and it looks like this is the first step to correct that.
Any other thoughts are welcomed.
