File permissions help

By markd ·
Hi folks,

I have recently moved from a Novell file server to a Microsoft 2003 Server. However, i am having some very strange problems with my users when they create new subfolders and files.

I have created a folder called [Share], and given the [Everyone] group Modify permissions on the structure below it. The structure below this share has been copied over from my old Novell server and has around 22300 folders and 164000 files. The thing is, when a user creates a NEW folder or a file, they become the sole owner of that file or folder. This means i have to go in, take ownership of the object, then add [Everyone] to the list of users. What am i doing wrong here?

Set Inheritabke permissions

by StealthWiFi In reply to File permissions help

Right click on your main folder > Properties

Go to Security (make sure permissions are how you want them)

Click Advanced

On the Permissions tab check Allow "Inhaeritable" AND "Replace permissions on all child objects"

That will take care of it.

Note: with that many files, setting the child permissions is going to take a while so don't be alarmed.

Cheers,

hey, that has worked. It took a while due to the number of objects but its worked. I'd done something like that before but didn't tick the "Replace permissions on all child objects" box.

thanks :)
