Windows 2008 Share/NTFS permissions

Posted on 2015-01-03

Last Modified: 2015-01-04
In previous versions of Windows servers, when it comes to permissions, I remember we used to give full control do domain users at the share level, then go to folders inside the share and give users specific NTFS permissions.

I am not sure if it is applied the same way in the newer versions, Windows 2008 and Windows 2012 ?

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

No reason to change that practice.

OK... I just have seen some Admins applying permissions at the Share level , giving some users Contribute, some Owner, some Read....
I am not sure why ?

That is (still) bad practice. Permission control on filesystem level is more granular, easier to manage,...

As the others have already pointed out it is a bad practice. Reason why...
- management nightmare (you have to manage multiple permissions in different areas)
- Troubleshooting becomes a pain (someone could be full access on a folder level but not required shared permissions)
- Stated already "more granularity"
