Help with Windows Server 2003 file permissions
Posted on 2013-06-26
This seems like a simple matter, but I can't get it resolved.
Our file server is running Windows Server 2003. I have a group of seven users who wanted to have their own network share that only they could access. All seven users would have full control over all files and folders.
So I set up a network share for them, and they moved their folders into it. Now all hell has broken loose, as some files/folders are inaccessible to some users (I realize now that the objects probably should have been COPIED and not MOVED, but it's too late now).
I tried to add all seven users individually to the parent directory's security tab, but the permissions did not seem to propagate down to the child folders. So I then created a security group in AD, added all the users to the group (as well as myself), and changed ownership of the top-level directory. And still... the users are complaining to me that they still can't see each other's files.
How do I set this up? Again, it's a simple thing in theory: All seven users should have full control over all the objects in the share. How hard can this be?
