Iomega + AD

Hello! I just bought an Iomega ix2-4 and succesfully integrated with AD.

But I am having a really hard time to make permissions work correctly.

I created some folders (and subfolders) in the Iomega, I can grant AD permissions to it, but they simply doesnt work.
It doesnt matter if I select only read access, it automatically selectes Full Control.

I realized that in order to access those folders (via network share) in Iomega, we have to first give access of Read/Write or Write in the permissions in the Iomega (see attach iomega 1).
After that, we can access the folders in the share to add/remove permissions that were supposed to work (see attach 2).

PS: Sorry that images are in portuguese but I think it wont be a problem for anyone who has seen those screens before.

Take a look at the following PDF file to configure Active Directory and Permissions accordingly...

I have already read that PDF many times and it´s not working as page 22 says.

The second link doesnt have the same issue as I do. Mine is different.
I cannot modify the folder and subfolders access in windows when I activate the button "Allow users to change file level security”.
It simply doesnt work. It says I have no permission...

I´ve already solved. Iomega doesnt support file permission inside the shares.
What I mean is, if you create a share in Iomega and wants to apply different permissions in subfolders below this share, you simply cant.
I asked their support and despite the user guide says that this is possible, in truth it is NOT.

I had to find that by myself because it was very urgent and I got no help here so far.
