NTFS permission issue - Domain Admins group
Posted on 2012-03-12
I am a member of the "Domain Admins" group in AD (we've got MS Windows 2008 Servers).
The group "Domain Admins" has full NTFS Permissions to our Data File Server's D: Drive and all it's subfolders.
When I login to the File Server and I click on any folder under d: it comes up with "Access Denied".
If I right-click, properties on the folder and go to the "NTFS" TAB it shows a message "To continue, you must be an administrative user with permissions to view the object's security properties" and gives a "continue" button, when I click this button it does show me the permissions of the folder and in there the "Domain Admins" group has full rights to the folder (inherited from the root of the drive, and is set to "this folder, subfolder and files")...
For what it's worth I did switch on Folder Enumeration but this should only hide folders where I've got no permissions and not deny access to visible folders where I've got full rights.
When I add myself directly to the folder with full rights it works fine, but somehow it's ignoring the fact that I am a member of Domain Admins and should through that membership have full rights to the content of the folder.
Any ideas on this strange phenomenon for 500 points... ?
