Windows SBS 2011: can't change permissions

Posted on 2011-05-12
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Access denied for me when I try to change permissions for a folder on Windows Small Business Server 2011. The owner of the folder is DOMAIN\Administrators group of which I'm a member (as I'm also that of the Domain Admins, Schema Admins, and Enterprise Admins groups). What else can I check?
Thank you.

    Add Administrator if you can.
    If you cannot, make your self owner of the folder.
    -Security tab
    - Mark Replace owner on subcontainers and objets
    - Select Administrator or Administrators
    - Apply

    You problems should be solved

    Nope. Changing the owner is denied as well.
