Win 2008 R2 File Server Share/NTFS Permissions
Posted on 2014-01-30
I've now encountered two different cases where a users permissions were changed on a folder and they shouldn't have been.
A user's sec group, where they currently are the only member of said sec group, has been getting changed to that particular user, and permissions set to this folder only. Security states it is inheriting these from the root of the share.
The only person with accounts able to modify sec permissions are myself and our operations director/VP of Operations who supervise our IT department (in case I get hit by a bus type thing, and one has the pw and the other has the UN).
When checking the root of the share, the permissions don't exist.
Any ideas how and why this is happening, and how to stop it?
