Microsoft Permissions-Security Learning

By maagero ·
Hi, My background is more Novell than Windows server based. I am having trouble figuring out the Windows permissions structure/design. I have a Windows 2003 server and Microsoft's rights or permissions structure seems convoluted; I am not use to it. It seems group policy is doing one thing and folder permissions are doing another. Is there a book, a resource, a course, or something that can speed up my learning of the Microsoft "way of permissions"? I can't even find how to give rights to my users to perform a simple printer install; an admin has to do it. Any advice would be great! Thanks, Ron.

I would recommend the AD Guide here from TechRepublic.

The Unleashed series on AD is pretty good also.

Folder permissions and Group Policy Objects are indeed 2 different things. Folder permissions are related to permission rights on objects and files.

GPO relates to security settings on servers and workstations.
