How do I enable inheritance for users roaming profile directories automatically (Profiles.V2, Profiles.V6)?


I have a problem with our roaming profiles ntfs permissions. We backup our users profiles daily, but when I create a new AD account and the user logs on, the users profile directory (Profiles.V2, V5, V6) created, do not inherit the folder permissions which should contain the backup service account read permissions for this folder. The permissions on the parent folder are correctly set. How can i enable inheritance without the need to do this manually for each user profile directory?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Cliff,

thank you for your help. Now I have added the service account to the backup operators group in AD and also on the file server, but the backup application states that access to the share is denied. What could be the problem?

That depends on the backup program being used, whether the default security policies have been tampered with, etc. Try doing a windows server backup (the built-in backup) and see if it works. If it does then you'll need to reach out to your backup vendor.
