Read Only Access To Single Directory On SBS 2008 Share

We have a user that needs read only access to a single directory on an SBS 2008 share. ie. "\\sbs2008\share\readonlydirectory"

Most users have a mapped O:\ drive for \\sbs2008\share while this user has O:\ mapped to \\sbs2008\share\readonlydirectory, with all mapping being done through Group Policy.

The mapping is fine, shows up, and is to the correct location. All other users have no issues, however the read only user receives access denied when trying to access their mapped O:\ drive.

This user is a member of a security group with Read & execute, List folder contents, and Read permission over the read only directory. They also have Traverse folder permissions over \\sbs2008\share.

It feels as though a permission over the share may be missing but I do not want to allow any access to the share.

I Generally make ALL shares fairly loose in terms of restrictions. NTFS will ALWAYS overide the share permissions.

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

NTFS will not always override share permissions, the most restrictive will apply
put change for users on the share and read/execute for the user on the required folder

Right that is the problem you need to have the same permissions setup on the share permissions or you can put full control since NTFS permissions will block anything the user doesn't have permission for

Actually, I think that should do it.
