  • Permissions In XP

    Iím trying to setup a fileserver in a domain environment. Hereís the following info:
    PC Name: fileserver1
    OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2
    Firewall: disabled
    CPU: 3.0 GHz
    Memory: 1GB

    Permissions in XP seems to follow the shared permissions only regardless of what the NTFS permissions is set.

    Folder Name: General-Drive (\\fileserver1\General-Drive)
    Shared Level: Domain Admins (Full Permissions), Everyone (Full Permissions)
    NTFS Level: Domain Admins (Full Permissions), Everyone (Full Permissions)

    SubFolder Name: Accounting (\\fileserver1\General-Drive\Accounting)
    Shared Level: Domain Admins (Full Permissions), Everyone (Full Permissions)
    NTFS Level: Domain Admins (Full Permissions), Everyone (Read Only)

    SubFolder Name: Common (\\fileserver1\General-Drive\Common)
    Shared Level: Domain Admins (Full Permissions), Everyone (Full Permissions)
    NTFS Level: Domain Admins (Full Permissions), Everyone (Full Permissions)

    SubFolder Name: Computer Tools (\\fileserver1\General-Drive\Computer Tools)
    Shared Level: Domain Admins (Full Permissions), Everyone (Full Permissions)
    NTFS Level: Domain Admins (Full Permissions), Everyone (Read Only)

    SubFolder Name: Help Files (\\fileserver1\General-Drive\Help Files)
    Shared Level: Domain Admins (Full Permissions), Everyone (Full Permissions)
    NTFS Level: Domain Admins (Full Permissions), Everyone (Read Only)

    When I test the permission set Everyone has Full Control in spite of what the NTFS permission is set at.

    However, when I test this on a Windows 2000 machine, it works flawlessly. I shared the folder by giving everyone full control at the share level. Then I use the controlling permissions at the NTFS level by giving the Accounting folder read only.

    Need assistance in this.
    Thanks

    Re: Permissions In XP

    You have "Simple File Sharing" turned on?

    Windows Explorer\Tools\Folder Options\View\Advanced settings -- scroll to the bottom.

    Turn it off and see if that fixes the problem.

    BTW -- Nice post. Plenty of info and upfront debugging on your part.

      Unfortunately, the "Simple File Sharing" was already disabled. I must be missing something in XP.

        Re: Permissions In XP - I GOT IT!!

        I GOT IT!!!

        I figured out the problem. Of course it was a permissions issue.

        Folder Name: C:\General-Drive (\\fileserver\General-Drive)
        Shared Level: Domain Admins (Full Permissions), Everyone (Full Permissions)
        NTFS Level: Domain Admins (Full Permissions), Everyone (Full Permissions)
        I neglected to say I had the following in the NTFS Level:
        FILESERVER1\Administrators (Full Control), SYSTEM (Full Control), FILESERVER1\Users (Read & Execute, Special)


        I clicked on the Advance button, I unchecked “Inherit from parent the permission entries that apply to child object. Include these with entries defined here.”

        I then removed FILESERVER1\Users (Read & Execute, Special) at the NTFS Level in all folders and subfolders.

        IT WORKED!!!

        This was completely my fault for not completely disclosing all the info. A complete error on my part, and for that… I apologize (in the UK apologise).
