Share Folder rights on Server 2008

Posted on 2013-11-20

I recently installed a new server for a company with Server 2008 R2 installed.  I setup a folder called management, shared it with the management user group.  I added each of the individuals who should have access to this folder to the management group.

The problem is they can only view and edit documents that they create in this folder.  Can someone help me make it so that everyone in the management group and edit, view, change documents in this folder and all sub folders?  My assumption is that their domain user account is fudging up the rights, but I don't have enough time or energy to devote to figuring out Microsoft's oh so great rights management settings.

How are the share settings configured?

How are the NTFS settings configured?

My guess is that you have a conflict between the share and the NTFS permissions.

Try granting full control share access to the Everyone group and then limit access using NTFS permissions.

Try below
Give management group full control share permissions on folder
Then you take ownership of root shared folder through NTFS advanced security permissions with "Replace owners on subcontainers" option selected.
Then add management group on NTFS permissions with required permissions (Modify) and click apply.
Then from advanced NTFS security permissions window, select "replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" checkbox and apply.

Now your top level folder permissions should get applied (inherited) to all sub folders and files without any issue

Thanks

Check the permissions for the group and make sure its setup for inheritance.

For the share permissions make sure the group is assigned modify.  Under the properties > security tab add the specific group (if not there already), select the advanced button and on the permissions tab click change permissions and select to replace all child objects inheritable permissions.
