Permissions on Main Redirected Folder
Posted on 2013-11-15
I have been trying to set up redirected folders on a Windows 2012 Server with a mix of XP and Windows 7 Clients. I set up the main folder on the server and call it RedirFldrs. I share it and give Everyone full permissions to the share and disable inheritance. I them give the following NTFS Permissions:
Administrators - Full - This folder, subfolders and files
System - Full - This folder, subfolders and files
Creator - Full - Subfolders and files
Authenticated Users - Read and Create Folder - This folder only
The problem is that when a user logs in and it creates his folder he only has full control to his main folder, not subfolders and files. That is not correct. For some reason it won't let me give Creators (above) full - This folder, subfolders and files. It will only let me give Creator Full - Subfolders and Files
I have been having to go in to each users folder, disabling inheritance, and specifying that that get full control to this folder, subfolders and files. I have found a lot of articles on this but none are really crystal clear on the rights I need to assign to the main RedirFldrs. There articles try and limp in home folders and a few other things. I obviously have something messed up because users need full control to their folder, subfolders and files.
Can someone point me to a clear, concise documents on how to set up the correct permissions on the main RedirFldrs so that the ensuing users have full control to their individual folder, subfolders and files?
