I'm trying to make sure I have the hang of AGDLP and its implementation before I start cleaning up an AD and file structuring that has been left to fend for itself for more than 6 years with everything that entails up to and including users permitted directly to ressources ;-)
Anyway... just to get me started I created a folder called "Test" on one of our servers, call it "server4".
Went to Security on the folder, chose prevent inheritance, chose copy, and then removed the "SERVER4\Users" entry (Don't know why this one is always there, since it seems to me it just allows any domain user permissions to the folder - any one care to explain?)
Created 4 users, "projman1, projman2, artdir and teamleder1"
Created Global called AllCompanyEmployees-G
Created Domain Local called AllCompanyEmployees-DL
Added the -G to the -DL
Assigned Permissions to the -DL on the "test" folder
I then proceeded to share the folder and added "Authenticated users" with "Allow All" permissions.
Now when I try to map the folder with the "projman1" as alternative credentials I am unable to map the folder.
I checked effective permissions and sure enough... no permissions whatsoever when i lookup projman1 user... if I use my user I have all rights (member of the Company-admins-G that is a member of the SERVER4\Administrators group).
Now the way I see it the "Authenticated Users" should make ample room for the 4 testusers I created simply by typing their password when trying to map the folder... What am I missing here?
