Access Rights in SBS 2011

Posted on 2012-08-28
Last Modified: 2012-09-03
I have an SBServer 2011 with 2 existing useres. I have created a new user both using the Wizard and just copying an existing user within Active Directory users and Computers.

The new user has administrator rights to their own PC. My problem is that when I try and write a file to the shared directories on the Server it says I dont have permission.

I have deleted inheritable rights and then added explicit users to the folder. Still they cannot write to the folders.

There are no special permissions so I dont understand why the rights are not being used properly.

    In the end I retook ownership of the folders. Removed inherited rights and reset all the shares and permissions which all seemed to work.

    Bit extreme but it solved the problem.

    I fixed it myself after changing all the Shares and permissions.
