How to alter NTFS permission WITHOUT asking user to logoff.
Posted on 2014-07-28
I created a new user group named "Contract Folder Administrators" on a small business server 2003.
"Joe" was a member of this group.
I added this group with Full Control to a preexisting folder:
s:\contracts\ where S: is mapped to shared folder \\server02\Shared. The full UNC name is
on server01 joe could not access the folders. I ran gpedit and gpedit /force but that did not help. I asked Joe to lock and unlock his computer with Windows Key L but that did not help. Finally, I asked him to log off and back on and that did the trick.
Is there any way to force the security updates to take effect immediately so my users don't have to log off?
