  • Server Shares and Permissions. Please help

    Hi All,

    We have lots of folders and files on the Windows 2003 Standard edition server for our organization which we share along with the users. We are controlling the access to these folders with the help of NTFS permissions. They quite working well . When user logins to his system he sees a shared drive (S:\) from this server and can also see all the other folders which are shared although the permissions obliviously depends upon their respective groups.

    But the new requirements that are coming up with after the discussion with the management are like these:

    1. Directly map only the shared folders to which the user has access to and not the whole S: root folder under which other folders are situated. In other words, only show the folders to the users to which he/she has access too.

    2. Users should not be able to browse the root folders with the help of UNC path which are there on the S: root folder.

    Can the above two new requirements can be fulfilled? If Yes, then how? Are there any web resources which you can point me too?

    Thanks in advance.

    I would sort the file and folder structure to how you want it. Map the necessary drives to the users profile and GPO them from browsing the network.

      I got the solution.

      Take a look at the Winodows Server 2003 Access-based Enumeration tool
