Filer Server Share Permissions

Experts -

I recently migrated one of our server shares to a new disk location due to increased storage space demands. I accomplished this by backing up the share with Symantec Backup Exec 2010, and restored it to the new location. I selected "restore security and all other attributes" when configuring the restore job. I can now browse the new location and see all of the folders and files with the correct permissions as they existed on the previous drive. I removed sharing from the old drive and then changed its drive letter from X to Y. I then changed the drive letter of the new, larger drive to X and enabled sharing with a share name of "XYZ." and gave "Everybody" full control.

My users can now read, view and execute files from this new share, but they cannot make any updates or create new files and/or folders when they have a drive mapped to the "Share Name."

Interestingly enough, if they map directly to the drive letter, the permissions carry through and access is as it should be and they can update and create files.

I have checked and rechecked the permissions, compared them to the old drive which is still available and everything matches perfectly. Any ideas?

It sounds like you didn't quite set the SHARE permissions to Everyone - Full control.  NTFS permissions are different from share permissions and Share permissions do not typically restore.  Post a screen shot of the permissions if you're still having problems after double checking, but I suspect you didn't reset the share permissions.

You are right! Under the Share tab - I had set the share permissions for the drive letter to Full Control for Everyone, but failed to set them for the Share name. Thank you for the prompt reminder!
