NTFS Question

By aspiring_one ·
We have a Windows NT 4.0 network and I have set up various directories with NTFS permissions. For some strange reason, several users are having problems accessing the directories because they are being told that "Access is Denied".

When I attempt to view the NTFS permissions on the directories, I get the following error:

-----------------Begin-----------------------

The security information for c:\share\file.txt is not standard and cannot be displayed. Windows NT 3.x and 4.x support certain features such as Deny Access Control Entries but cannot edit security informaiton which uses these features.

The information may have been modified by a computer running Windows NT 5.0, which supports these features and can edit the information which uses them.

You do not have permission to change the security information for this resource.
---------------End---------------------------

First of all, I am the domain admin and not only have access to everything, I set up the permissions on these directories in the first place. Also, we do not have a Windows NT 5.0 (Windows 2000) machine anywhere on our network.

I have never seen this error before and have no idea what it means. Can someone tell me what the problem is?

I would first try to take ownership of the file. Then I would remove the share, add the share again, make sure the share gives the everyone group access. Then go into NTFS and add the users you want to give access to.

Are you running ANY W2K apps ANYWHERE on the network?? How about third party security software? Another possibility is, of course, a virus but I doubt it. Might want to check it just in case though.

We are using a third party product called Quota Server that basically applies restrictions on the size of files and directories since NT 4.0 doesn't natively do this. It did seem as though the problem started once this application was installed.Do you think it could be modifying the NTFS?Any ideas?

I'm guessing that the problem is the Quota Server. I'm not an expert on the product, but it seems to me that it installs a security overlay and a malfunction in that overlay could very well cause the problems you're seeing.

I think I'd be chatting with their Tech Support folks.
