How do i assign a share to an existing folder on D: Drive
Asked by: mp04279
Solved by: Netminder
I created a new security group on the SBS2011 server 'Acctng' and then went to the DataServer, and assigned the 'Acctng' group full control of the QBPro folder.   It didn't work.  Both members of the Acctng group could not access the QBPro folder.

From the folder that I want the security group assigned, right click, properties, Security tab, Advanced Security Security Settings, Owner (take ownership as SBS2011 Admin), Permissions, Change, Add.... Acctng Group domain, apply to 'This folder, subfolders and files' with FULL control.

Users still can't get to folder.   Access denied.   Rebooted server & workstations.   Same thing.   What am I missing?

If I use the SBS2011 Standard Console and attempt to use the wizard for Shared Folders and Web Sites -- Add a new shared folder task.... it does not give me an option of sharing the D:\ drive on another server within the domain.

Right click on the folder - click on the sharing tab - advanced sharing and add your users / groups here.
