Dear Experts

I have file servers on cluster with 2012 OS. I have enabled ABE on them and I need advise on one thing please.

within the share permission of share, I have enabled "everyone" with "Full Control" access and managing folder permissions with ntfs.

is this an accepted solution or should I use specific groups ? in old 2008 cluster, it shows a lot of groups and I do not want to replicate that on 2012 cluster. would it not be easier to set  everybody with full access and use groups within the permissions section?

The most restrictive permission set will win in a situation where multiple permissions apply to an object. In this case, you have Share permissions applied to the network share object and NTFS permission on the files themselves. If the share permissions are set to Full Control for everyone, users will still have to have the appropriate NTFS file permissions for any files they want access to. However, setting Everyone Full control may give users the ability to modify share settings if they can log into the server with their user account. Personally, I tend to remove the Everyone option and change it to Authenticated Users with Read and Write access on share permissions. But that is a common and accepted practice.
