I'm on BOE server 2011, and I'm having an interesting time managing user in-and-out of groups for security purposes, the most glaring example I'm dealing with now is my inability as an "Administrator" to delete a User account from a group, and to be specific the "Everyone" group.

Please advise.
Thx

Why do you want to delete him from the everyone group?

Are you the ADMINISTRATOR or an account with admin privileges?

I'm the Administrator, and the "everyone" group is an all-encompassing group with broader portfolio, I want this specific user to have an exclusive access to a specific folder containing classified data, but this user being part of the "everyone" group is problematic as that group has wider access, I hope I explained the situation.

I asked about the administrator logon because if you logo n as Administrator you have more privileges than a logon that is in the administrators group.

DO you want this user to have access to all the folders or is he restricted to this particular folder?

I want this user restricted to a specific folder, but I can't get there because he's a member of the "everyone" group, and that group has a view of all folders and objects.

I assume the number of folders is too large to deny him privileges to them and similarly for the specific folder the number of users is too great to deny them.

In a nutshell, you summed it well, but to simplify my question more, I want user "X" to access folder "Y" only, I don't care how we get there as long as we can do it.

You can't delete any users from the everyone group.

IN the security of the folder you can REMOVE FOLDER ACCESS for the EVERYONE GROUP
Then GRANT ACCESS to your user.

For the other folders you can deny him access.

I don't have a CMC readily available right now.  If you need step by step instructions I'll get them in the morning and post them

I was carrying the AD (Active Directory) model of group & users behavior in my head as I approached this problem, but once I started customizing the access type based on your recommendation, it was straightforward from there.

mlmcc to the rescue, many thanks.
