Windows Permissions New Folders and Files inherritence propogation
Posted on 2015-01-15
I have a new Win2008R2 Standard 64X file server, this is on an AD domain.
I have an issue where a user is creating a new folder and a new file within this folder, it would seem the folder first and then the file after are not picking up the correct permissions.
A lot of these folders have custom NTFS permissions that differ from the top folder through to these levels.
For example I have.
-> = new folder
Top level folder Share - Everyone Access -> Team Folder(inherit unchecked, team security group added full control with propogation) -> Usersfolder(inherit ticked) -> User is creating new folder here - User is creating new file here.
The problem looks like when the user is creating the new folder the folder is set to inherit by default but it inherits to "This folder only" It does not inherit to "All Subfolders and Files", which is weird because the folder that the new folder is inheriting its permissions from has the permission to apply to "All Subfolders and Files". When the user creates the new file the NTFS permissions again do not inherit the user is permissioned on the NTFS ACL and the the Administrators group of the file server.
This is a bit of a problem for me, Any ideas?
I need people to be able to create new files with the files inheriting what is actually above , not inheriting permissions to this folder only.
