SBS 2011 Folder Redirect Sharing

We just completed a migration from SBS2003 to SBS2011.

Migration went relativelly smooth.

We established folder redirection for My Documents.  That is working.

In Sbs2003 we had a special security group setup that included individuals that management wanted to have overall access to the x:\UserShared Folders to manage My Documents when needed.

In SBS2011 I've tried to create the same scenario.  I've destroyed the security and had to reset it last week.  All is fine at the moment, but I can't get a security group to have full access to x:\users\folder redirections.

If there is another approach that would work I'm open to suggestions.

Goal is to have all My Doc folders at the server, globally, and have a master security group have full access.

Appreciate any responses.

Thanks
Bruce

Do the subfolders to X:\Users have the "inherit permissions" checkbox cleared? That could explain it.

Does putting the special group on the ACL for X:\Users and setting it to have full control rights not work somehow? Those permissions should inherit down the file and folder tree.

You'd think that would work and that's the first thing I did.  Nope.

This is way trickier than it needs to be.

Even as an Administrator you don't have access to the user level folders.  I believe this is my design in SBS2011.

Not at all like previous versions.
