Applies to 2008 R2.
Over the past few days I have been having issues propagating permissions on a file share from my file server. When ownership of the parent folder is propagated to all subfolders and files, errors occur with a ‘access is denied error’. This is cruicial because ownership needs to propagate in order for us to apply new ntfs permissions for users.
Permissions are setup in this way on the parent folder:
NTFS: Drive Change (group) - Change permissions
Domain Admins – Full Control
OWNER: Domain Admins
When propagating the OWNER permissions multiple ‘access is denied’ messages appear for multiple sub directories that are not named.
When propagating the NTFS permissions the above is true also.
When checking at least 20 of the first generation of subfolders it is true that they are set to inherit from parent object.
Nothing that I am aware of has changed recently and am not aware of any other directories experiencing this. Please find attached screenshot.
