icacls permissions suddenly seems to change for certain workstations in domain
Posted on 2014-04-09
AD-domain on 2003-servers
Windows 7 workstations defined in AD
Users is logging on domain, and local non-admin rights
The last weeks I have stuggled with user-permissions on desktop and taskbar links (and other files too).
Issue havn't been reported at all before ca 4 weeks ago.
The user/workstation can run fine for a couple of days, the suddenly for only some users/workstations it seems that the user-rights to desktop-links aso is changed.
The users are prompted for:
"Open File - Security Warning"
Seems to be related to the workstation, when the user logs on to an other the workstation, the Issue is not there.
Have read a lot of topics how to partly solve the Issue on relevant folders by t.ex:
C:\Users\Public\Desktop>ICACLS *.LNK /L /SETINTEGRITYLEVEL MED
which solve the Issue for actual shorcuts, but when users create a new shortcut, the Issue persists for this new shortcut.
I'll really like to find the Cause to this Issue, hope someone can guide me where to search.
