Permission not working the same for Security Group as Single user.

We have a Security Group with the same Permissions assigned, as users for the same folder. I normally use groups, vs adding individual users, someone before me started this. So I added a I created to the Sec. Group and he still can not view or access this folder.

Can someone explain what may be wrong?

you will need to be the administrator, go into advance and take ownership. then you can reset the permissions to what you want..
Did you ask your customer to log out and log back in?
Most of the time addresses the issue for me.

First to confirm user is in the group
run a gpresult /r on user logon machine and check if user group is listed as applied.

do you have a shared permission set for individual user?
You have NTFS permission set to the group, but is the group on the share list?

ceo_tech: understand this portion, not sure what good this will do me after.

Justin Yeung: ran gpresult /r and can see the group listed that he is a member of. Not sure about the shared permission. Is this part of that output?
Justin YeungSenior Systems EngineerCommented:
no share permission is under the will have to see it from the shared machine.

under share, click on Advanced Share (windows 7, 2008 and up), that's the shared permission

if you have NTFS permission, it doesn't mean you can access the shared folder.

another way around, if you have shared permission, you might not able to access the items or the folder since NTFS permission will also be checked.
HaroldNetwork EngineerAuthor Commented:
this is a Windows 2003 server, not seeing Share, as an option from the shared folder(s).
Justin YeungSenior Systems EngineerCommented:
you have to see it under the server shared side.

right click on the shared folder, then share tab, permission button

or use mmc remotely

 computer management-->connect to another computer-->shared folders-->shares

right click on the share and select share permissions.
