End-users getting read-only behavior from Shared folders that have Modify perms
Posted on 2014-01-07
I have an old "Home folder" setup on a Win2008r2 server that was moved from several retired Win2003 servers, all in a Win2003 Domain. There are a few dozen folders under the Share that are declared as the Users' "Home Folder" in AD Users and Computers. So each user has Full access to one folder and no access to the others. If a User is logged into PC and opens a file from within this Home folder, it will show as (read only) in any Office App. and cannot be saved back to the folder. I looked at the Icacls of specific files in the folder and the results show the User having : (I)(F) and the Domain Admins as the same. So the permissions look ok, but something must be setup incorrectly. I know this Home Folder thing is old-fashioned but it should still be usable I think. Any help would be appreciated.
