Need help with Windows 2012 server DFS and folder share permissions. Created a namespace and DFS replication and shared the folder. Granted Full access permissions to a specific group. The group members can add files and folders, but get a read only message when trying to perform other actions.

check the NTFS file-level permissions as they apply in addition to the share permissions.
try accessing the share directly (\\servername\share) to rule out the namespace bit.
