Windows 2008 File Permissions
Posted on 2014-04-08
I know this is simple, but forgive me, I haven't had to work on folder permissions in years. This is what I'm trying to do.
In a school setting, I'm trying to set up a folder for each student that mounts when they log in.
I have a shared folder called Student Folders.
Underneath that, are folders for the graduating year, 2014, 2015, 2016, etc.
Inside those folders are the individual student folders. For example, inside the 2014 folder, I have folders named bjones, lsmith, etc. which correspond with their usernames.
The way I have it set up now, is that each student id belongs to a group called STUDENT. The STUDENT group has access from the top to the bottom. i.e. Student Folders --> 2014 --> bjones.
This works just fine. All of the clients are Macs, so when the student logs in, his network folder mounts on his dock.
The problem is, ALL students can get into all other students' folders. I only want a student to see his own folder. So when bjones logs in, he gets to Student Folders --> 2014 --> bjones .
Other info ...
bjones' profile in AD has the radio button selected for "connect to" set to :
\\servername\Student Folders\2014\bjones .
And again, Student Folders is set up as a shared folder.
How do I set this up so that each student sees only his own stuff?
