In an attempt to modify the permissions of a directory on a 2008 R2 file server, the process appears to get stuck on a file forcing me to cancel it. I would then move that troublemaker file outside the directory and run again and it simply gets stuck at the next one and so on. I have left this overnight and it didn't even move. This also occurs when I attempt to change the ownership of the files/folders.
Due to an active directory upgrade we currently have 10 domain controllers with 2003/2008/2012 R2 across two sites. I logged onto the server and ran "echo %logonserver" then checked that server for any errors during this process and found nothing. I also downloaded ldp.exe and was able to perform connections and binds to the logonserver.
This site points to the same issue i'm experiencing, however doesn't really produce a solution so I'm at a standstill.
Any help would be appreciated.
