DFS has been configured on 3 of our 2008 servers. All of them are 64 Bit but two are STD SP2 and one is R2. I never used DFS before so all this is new. From what I can tell the replication and namespace are working. I have a very simple test structure with just a few folders. The issue Iím having is that no matter what permissions I set on the child folders of the root, users (other than admins) are all read & execute. I shared the subfolders directly and added the users to the share access but it didnít work (still read). I also had the userís navigate to the folder directly without going through the namespace and they were denied write access. I turned off inheritance on the child folders and added the users there directly but it had no effect. What confused me is when I tested this on several occasions (Iím pretty sure) it was working. If I recreate the folder permissions outside of the root DFS share they users can access and write to it.
No announcement yet.
