i am getting the followig message

you cant remove name surname because this object is inherting permissions from its parent.  to remove name surname, you must prevent the object from inheriting permissions.   turn off the option for inheriting permissions, and then try removing name surname again.

getting this when i add person to group or folder permissions within active directory 2003.

thanks

On the folder click security tab | Advanced | Change Permissions

> Uncheck "include inheritable permissions from this objects parent"  

> select add

then remove the object

Thanks

Right click the folder or file you want to add the user to, go to the security tab, then advanced. There you will see a check box for "Inherit Permissions". Uncheck this, and you should be able to add users / groups to the object now.
