Setting shares and ntfs permissions for

By exitweb ·
I am setting up the users permissions for the directory structure and a bit unsure of the correct way to assign permissions. I would like to make a top level folder shared with the folders below read only so the no more folders can made in this dir with all data being saved below the 2nd level of the folders. The permissions then would be assigned ntfs.

all help greatly appreciated

First, assign the users to groups. Then, create the shares, and assign share permissions to the groups. This allows for much easier administration, and you don't need to track the permissions on each level of the directory structure - only at the share. Finally, map the users to the share(s) using logon scripts.

On the User Manager for Domains, create different group accounts. Then, go to individual accounts and identify, who belongs to what group.

After that, you can go to the shared directory. The permission on the security tab is the ntfs share, provided of course the partition is formatted w/ntfs.

Yes, definitely you can prevent users from creating more directories beyond 2nd level by making it read-only, however, users who would access that will not be able be able to do anything but READ, unless of course that's the only thing you'll allow them to do.

On the security tab, click on permissions. Delete the Everyone group if you see it, click Add button, then ShowUsers button. From there you can pick, either a group or users to be allowed on the shares. Don't forget to on the permission to be READ-ONLY.

good luck
