sharepoint 2010 foundation team site permissions
Posted on 2011-05-09
Hi Experts. I recently rolled out MS Sharepoint 2010 Foundation on a Windows 2008 R2 server which is running in a Windows 2003 AD environment with 200+ Windows XP desktops. I am trying to configure Sharepoint to work in this office where there are 10 different departments. To minimize the nightmare, I am rolling SP out with one team site (IS) and using the first team site/home page as the community page.
With that said, I'm thinking of the configuration as such:
I set the permissions on IS Dept to not inherit the group permissions (Team Site Visitors) from Home but anytime I configure Home, those permissions show up on IS Dept. Also, when I remove the group from IS Dept, that group disappears from Home preventing my test user from accessing the site. So, the question I am asking is how do I configure the Home page (not sure what the proper technical name is for this page but it was the first one created during the SP install) groups so that they don't alter the groups for the IS Dept page?
Just so that you know where I am coming from, I am a pure novice with SP.
: ) Thanks Experts
