replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object query

If a security group, e.g. EEusers had been granted full control over a file share, at both share and directory level, e.g. \\server\share - but there was a subdirectory \\server\share\dir1 which was not inheriting permissions from \\server\share, and had been configured with a different (more restrictive) directory ACL which did not include the EEusers group at all on the directory ACL............ if a member of the EEusers group went on the security tab of properties on the \\server\share folder, then went >advanced>change permissions, and then selected "replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" - would this then grant the EEusers group access to the \\server\share\dir1 - essentially wiping out the existing more stringent ACL currently set at \\server\share\dir1?

I am not from a server admin role, but our server admin says he doesn't think it would 'wipe out' and more secure subdirectoryACL, whereas our security/risk team are concerned it would..Obviously removing full control at the root of the share for EEusers group would make the most sense to remove any possibility, but to settle an argument and help us assess the risk, feedback welcome.

are you saying after applying that policy check the above for the group on \\server\share\dir1 to see if it applied successfully? I don't currently have a server to test this on hence wondered what the answer was to the question?

The key word here is *Replace*.  All of the permissions that are currently in affect on the child will be *replaced* by the parent permissions.
