Network Share permissions work in 2008, but not in 2008 R2
Posted on 2013-11-15
I have a 2008 server that had been working for years. I am moving the programs to a newer machine running 2008 R2. This program doesn't matter. The problem is with Windows permissions. I am a domain admin. On the 2008 server, I can browse to what ever folders I like, but on this 2008 R2 server, it says I must proved permissions to access each folder. Even though domain admins are listed in the security tab. When I click continue, it opens, but adds my user name to the list in the security tab. I need to give read/write permissions to a single folder \\server\group\user\data\share, but not the folders above this "share" folder. In 2008, this was working fine, now in R2 it stopped working. The user had been a member of a group with access to the shared folder, but now even with the user explicitly listed, he does not have access. If it matters \\server\group\ is a shared folder that does show up to "everyone" when you go to \\server.
