Migrating to Server 2016. The server in question is both the PDC and file server, two partitions, C and D.
D partition has the default share of D$, and this is where shares will be created from the folder tree located there.
The problem is that I can create shares all day long, with custom permissions, but the default attribute on any folder created inside of D$ is Read Only. The vendor states that it is because I created the shares via Computer Management and not the Share Wizard. Used the Share Wizard, same result.
Some articles state that this is a "default attribute" and that's just the way it is. Others suggest a command line permissions adjustment, using
ATTRIB -R /D /S "<Foldername>
attrib -r -s c:\test
Neither solves the problem, at least not according to the GUI. I can't believe this to be the "way it is" because a read only shared service wouldn't work very well, and this problem has been around since Server 2008. My best guess is that unlike what I am used to, the Read Only attribute means nothing, and the share permissions over ride the folder attributes.
Yes or no? I can't really roll out a new server and domain to the users as a read only kernel. Am I missing something here?
