I have IIS 7.5 running on Server 2008 R2 with the FTP role services installed. Here's what I'm trying to accomplish:

I want Users to be isolated to a specific FTP subdirectory depending on their security group membership: i.e.: IT_Users are jailed to FTP\it_users, Accounting users jailed to FTP\accounting, etc

Is this possible, and how should I configure?

Thanks!

The FTP services provided with Windows do not have that level of granularity.  An add-on like WSFTP, Bullet-proof FTP, or Filezilla (it is free) would be the best solution.

Come to think of it, you can, but it is a pain.  I would use Filezilla.  Check this link:

Filezilla will work with security groups/AD integration?

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

That I am unsure of.  Check the Filezilla docs.  Did also you check the link I supplied?

Yes, this article appears to be helpful. I'll read through this and let you know. On a side note, it appears that LDAP/AD integration is being developed for FileZilla:

Not a "be-all" answer, but it got me pointed in the right direction.

Thanks.
