We are running a server 2008 R2 domain and domain user's can't change folder or file permissions even though they have full control to the folder or file, domain admin's can just fine.  They just get access is denied when they try.  Any ideas why.

Are you talking about on a network share?
Have you set/checked BOTH Share permissions AND NTFS permissions on the actual folder on the server?

Hi,

If it is Shared folder, grant full permission to the user or a group which the user member of.

orelse, if it is issue with security permission. Goto property of the folder -> advance -> effective permission and check the permission to the user.

Regards,
Prem

It's a folder under a shared folder.  The Authenticaded Users group has change and read permissions set on the share.  The folder itself the user has full control.  The effective permissions on that folder shows the user has full control.
