Small Business Server Permissions Issue

I am new to an environment that is running sbs 2011.  When we add new users as standard users they are not getting access to a folder that appears to be set up to allow standard users access.  Existing users have this access.  What am I missing or doing wrong?

The folder, is this a file share?

If so, check share permissions as well as filesystem permissions.

Compare Group Membership of users who has access and users which have no access.

Yes it is a file share.  I have done the user comparison as you suggest.  I will look at the share permissions and the filesystem permissions when I get back there on Tuesday.

But why would new users with the same role not be included?  That is what is bothering me.

Thanks!

To make sure users have the same groups assigned as old users, just use Active Directory users and computers snap in as normal but copy an old user when creating a new one. This saves you the work of adding that user to all the relevant groups needed.

I normally set up a disabled template user account for this purpose which I then just copy to a new user as required - and have different OU's to separate more powerful users from  the rabble ;)

Is there a user limit?  I found some resources talking about a 75 user limit but I only see 49?
