  • User has rights to something they shouldn't

    Just checking something today, and there's a user who has access to the my documents share on our Server 2003 VM (as in everyone elses folders! he can read, write, delete!!!). I've checked his AD user account settings and he is just a domain user, have also checked the permissions/special permissions of the share itself and the share(s) above it and he isn't specifically listed.

    My normal domain user account doesn't have access like his does.

    He's not IT literate at all so it's not like he's managed to find any ways around this.

    Any ideas where I can start checking?

      Put his username in (on the my docs share and shares above this), he has exactly the same permissions as me...

      Traverse folder/execute file
      List folder/Read data
      Read attribues
      Read Extended attributes
      Create folders/append data
      Read permissions

        Is he a named user or is he getting the permissions through group memberships???
