File Share Permissions Windows Server 2008
Posted on 2011-09-15
I have setup a file server running Windows Server 2008 and I have provisioned a share under which I have created many directories, one for each of my users. So, for example, the share is called Backup_Share, and in that i have directories such as joe.smith, ann.thompson, etc.
I have enabled Access Based Enumeration and what I would like to do is control access to the user folders in such a way that when mapping to the share the users see and can access only their folder.
Now, I know that share and NTFS permissions have to be configured independently, and that the most restrictive of the two takes precedence. I also realize I will have to stop the share's inheritance from its parent object. I was wondering if any of you could tell me the best process for doing this?
