shareFolder, 2nd name -- Windows Server 2012 R2 ?

I already have a share called
"\\serverName\Year End Audits" and
started to create "\\serverName\YEA"
which targets the same location, but
attached shows that it wants to grant
EVERYONE security to "\\serverName\YEA"
instead of using the same security
"\\serverName\Year End Audits"
already has which is NOT EVERYONE

"\\serverName\YEA" is the same as
"\\serverName\Year End Audits", just a
SHORTER shareFolder name for people to use

How can I have it use the same security so when
"\\serverName\Year End Audits" security changes
I do NOT have to also change "\\serverName\YEA"
security ?

You can't. Different share, different security. You'll have to duplicate the same share permissions manually.

As they are the same share just use NTFS Permissions on the disk folder and give the shares full access to everyone.  Only those with valid NTFS permissions will have access after all.
Qlemo"Batchelor", Developer and EE Topic AdvisorCommented:
Totally agree with Neilsr. The general advice for share permissions is exactly that: Don't care about them at the share level (i.e. allow full access), and do everything necessary at the filesystem level (folder and files). Only if you want to have a read-only share for everyone it makes sense to restrict the share.
One reason for that is that you are not able to enhance permissions on a subfolder or file over the share permissions, but you can do so with filesystem permissions.
But since you already use the (restricted) shares, that is no point in changing it now. But you should really consider to switch to filesystem permissions only mid-term.
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Lee W, MVPTechnology and Business Process AdvisorCommented:
Share permissions are WEAK - I generally set EVERYONE to FULL (Generally, there are exceptions).  Then I rely on NTFS security.  As the others have said, simply set the permissions as you want them - you can't "copy" or "duplicate" them automatically (easily) but you can just set them the same - do you have a problem doing that?

> How can I have it use the same security

Since that's the same target share, the ntfs security is also the same, whatever the current settings are. Change ntfs, and both shares are affected.

Why have 2 shares anyway... For user convenience? I.e. Less typing?

Isn't it possible one or more comments have contributed variously to the question? That may be why the author spread the points so.

Everyone had good comments, but you seemed to have the most details, therefore I awarded to you
Qlemo"Batchelor", Developer and EE Topic AdvisorCommented:
Not sure we should leave it at that, as the new closure only marks a follow-up comment as solution.
The very first comment is the direct answer. Neil told a better way of managing, and I explained in a follow-up comment why and told more details. So I would expect

or similar.

thermoduric, please reopen this question
so I can do the below like EXPERT Qlemo
recommends or let me know how you would
like me to assign the points.

Anything is fine with me,
