IIS 7.5 FTP Error 530 - Home Directory Inaccessible

Posted on 2012-08-20

I have a Win 2008R2 server that I have configured FTP. I want the to allow all the users in Global Security group to have access. I have created the group and added the users.

In IIS, I have enabled FTP Authentication for basic, In FTP Auth rules, I have given read/write to the security group via Roles.

In windows, i have given full control to the security group.

When I logon to the FTP site, I get error 530 - User cannot log in, Home directory inaccessible.

If I give "Everyone" read access in FTP Auth rules, the user can log in, but so can everyone else in the domain.

How do I allow access to the security group without allow everyone else access?

    It seems that recreating the FTP directory solved the issue.
