Apply Folder Permissions on EMC AX4 Sans

We have a Windows 2008 R2 server and an EMC AX4 San environment.  The SAN is configured with 10 disks, divided into 6 seperate drives.  

I shared out the root drive and applied the security settings.  The root share has permissions set for Domain Admin, and a unit group.  These groups have full access for the share.
The security settings are set at a per user setting, with Domain Admin having full rights.  
I logged in with my user account, which has Domain Admin rights and was denied access to the drive.
I went back into the rights and gave myself individual full access rights for both the share and security, and was then able to access the drive.

Could anyone tell me if this issue is due to the Array, or is it a glich with Windows?

Please let me understand better the environment: so you have created a LUN in the EMC and you are connecting connecting it to the Windows Server 2008 R2 through iSCSI or FC, isn't it? So you see the disk in the Windows server and configure a new drive with a local letter in Windows, right? I understand you have no problem writting a new folder or file in the new drive in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Then instead of creating a folder and sharing it, you are trying to share directly the root folder. And you experience problems when accessing the shared folder from other computers in your domain.

It seems to be an issue with Windows, not the array, but please confirm the above. Have you tried to share a folder (not the root) in the SAN drive? Have you tried to share in another local (not SAN) disk?

We figured out what the issue is.  Since we did not have Domain Users included in the share or security, we were not able to access the drive.  We are not going to share out the root, we will create a folder just below root and do the shares at that level.
