Hi,

I know it may sound a easy process for most of you but need help to make sure I am following correct method

I need to add a new security  group  for a folder that has lots of subfolders,  and folder that I am trying to change permissions of it is in a middle of a long folder directory.
 I need allow only  limited users to have access to it and also remove other groups that has inheritable permissions.

folder is in our SAN so I will be browsing the folder from one of our 2003 server

Can you please provide me step by step guide for this?

I can create the new group and add users into it in AD but my issue how to remove other groups from this folder and new one in and then remove others. I have to make sure that permission to folder is inherited its subfolders.

Right click on the folder in question > PropertiesSecurity tab > click on the Advanced button on the bottom right corner.
In the Advanced Security Settings window that appears, untick the Allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propagate to this object and all child objects box > click on Copy when prompted > click Apply - DO NOT click on the OK button
Next select the groups/users that you want to remove their access to this folder in the Permission entries box > click the Remove button (you may have to do this more than once) > click OK when done
Now you can click on Add > type in the name of your new security group > OK > specify the access you want to give them to this folder > Apply
Last step is to make sure the new permissions apply to all subfolders and files: click on the Advanced button again in the security properties window > tick the Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects box > click Yes when prompted > OK  and you're done.

Hi,

thans for your response. I attached two screenshots;
 first one  shows permissions from the main folder  which should not have inheritance from abouve root folders

second one  shows subfolder of our main folder we are trying to give access to only new group we created and it is passing the permissions to its subfolders.

can you please confirm I made it as you suggested

Yep that looks correct to me. Just make sure that you grant whatever account you are using access to these folders as well, otherwise you'll have a hard time administering the permissions in future.
