  • Security and File Permissions

    I am getting in to a bit of a mess with the above. I thought what I wanted would be simple but I donít seem to be getting anywhere after a morning googleíing and testing.

    I would like to have a share on my server called data. Under this I would like to have a group of folders. These folders will have two sets of users. Those who can create new files/folders and those who can just view what is there.

    \\server\share\clients
    Folder1
    Folder2
    Folder3

    I created the share on the server and with the administrators having full control and the Everyone group Read only permissions.

    I then created a folder, Clients and populated it with a few folders.

    I went to my client PC and could see the share and the folders. But could not create anything, as I intented.

    I then created a group grp-client-RW and added the user I wanted to give full access to it.

    Then on the Clients folder I added under the security tab the group grp-cleint-RW and gave it Full Control access.

    I though I would the be able to start creating folders, but no.

    Does anyone have any links I can read up on this with or tips for setting permissions in SBS 2003

    Many thanks

      Security permissions is for me like a matrix or table with file permissions across the top and share permissions along the side. You need to fill in the matrix from both sides to get the effective permissions.
      The major change in Win2003 era is that when you create a share, by default the Everyone group gets read only permissions. Previous versions gave Everyone full permission. You can also navigate to the required directory, rt-click, Security/advanced/ effective permissions and enter the user or group to see what permissions they have.

        Thanks guys, I am still a little confused but I have got it working now.

        I started from scratch with the folder structure and it works fine.
