NT File permisions

By s_torres ·
I am migrating files from a Netware system over to NT. In Netware, the permisions granted on subfolders of a mapping only allowed those users with proper rigths to view and edit files and folders. I have been able to establish adequate rights on NT, but users can see all subfolders within the share. Is there a way to set NT the same way I had in Netware?

You're saying that you, for example, map m: to \\stuff, and when users got to m:, they can see all the folders on m:; and you've been able to set permissions so that they can only access specific folders on me:.

And is your question , Is there any way to make it so they can only see folders on m: to which they have permissions?

I don't believe so, no.

This is one area where NT is different. The users will be able to "see" the folders but with the proper permissions set, they will not be able to "access" the folders or the files in them.

This is the conversion of rights Novell/NT
Novell NT
Supervisor (S) Full control (All)
Read(R) Read(RX)
Write(W) Change(RWXD)
Erase Change(RWXD)
Modify(M) Change(RWXD)
Create Add(WX) Custom right
File Scan List(RX) Custom right
Access control Change permissions(P)

In your case, give the Domain Users Group NT permissions Special Access(R) No Specified. Then create a global group with the users allowed to view and edit files in the share and give the group the permissions according to the above table. Remember that if share permissions and NTFS permissions combines the most restrictive apply.
Of course, all this is onlyvalid if you have your share in a NTFS partition. Otherwise, no way.

Under NT users will see the folder but do not have access to see inside it.
Under NT a folder is considered as a "file" inside another folder, if you have read ti that folder, you can see everything inside it (and the folder itself!)
This is not adramatic issue unless you have (like me) 250 folders and the user have access to only one.

Hope it helps

yes, there in the share folder permission option , there you will find the option to liust folder option, allow only the people you want to see the subfolders and apply the seeting to all subdirectories. this should fix the problem you are having. ntfs and two areas file permissions and folder permissions.
