  • Win 2008, Grouping users in AD for folder permissions

    Dear Experts,

    I have Win 2008 Std 32 bit and active directory. My clients are Win 7 and Win XP users. I have a folder name projects in which all users have permissions to save files, now I want to implement policy so that nobody is allowed to delete any file from Projects but can create a folder and write/copy etc.

    The users in AD are in OU's like design dept, management now I want to group such users so that on Projects folder I simply add that GROUP of users who are not allowed to delete any file instead of adding a user one by one from different OU's. Along with this 3/4 users I need to allow them to delete the files from Projects. How this can be done I want grouping because in this way I dont need to add name by name every time if on a folder I need restriction.

    Thanks and awaiting your replies.

    Permissions are applied to groups, not OUsAFAIK there is no way to automatically grant group membership when a user is put into an OU
