File Permission on NTFS & Share Name

By iqbaljd ·
I am Administrator for System. I am Using Windows NT 4.0 Server. My Clients are windows 2000 Professional & NT workstation.
I am facing two problems, First Problem I want my users to access the Directory mapped for them, and add,read,modify,move and rename files but should not be able to delete it.


Second I am defining the Home Directory in the Profile, The Directory which is shared with a $ sign to hide it has sub directories in it. I am mapping it profile like shown below where the share name of the directory is Information$ and User1 is a sub folder in Information folder.

\\fileserver\Information$\User1
It does not directly map to the User1 folder instead it maps only to Information folder shows me all the folder in it, whereI want only to see inside USER1 folder.

But this works on Windows 2000 Professional.


Please Guide me....

File Permission on NTFS & Share Name

by TimTheToolMan In reply to File Permission on NTFS & ...

Hi,

Yep. Thats a difference between Win2k and NT. You cant map to anything other than a share on NT, whereas in 2k, you can map to a subdirectoy of a share.

You may need to create shares for each user in your mixed environment.

As to the first part, that should be achievable by altering the Information$ level and propogating the changes down.

Right-click and choose properties, then security. Remove delete. You may need to create a custom setting as I cant quite remember if you need delete to enable "move". A move is, afterall, a copy followed by a delete if performed across partitions.

Cheers,
Tim.

File Permission on NTFS & Share Name

Unfortunately, there is no "modify" permission. There is a "write" permission, but this is misleading (It should really be called "Add"). "Write" only allows you to add a file to a directory. In order to make changes to a file, you need to have the "Delete" permission. Think about it, if someone has can make changes to a document, then they have the ability to delete part of the document.

The drive mapping to use for NT Workstations to map a drive to the home directory is
NET USE X: /home(where x is the drive letter you wish to use)
In order for this to work, however, their home directory path must be listed under their profile in UserManger.
