Read only problem

By rick.fisher ·
After migrating data from a Novell server to a Windows 2003 Server, the user can only read the data, not make changes to it. I have assigned security but the user still can not even create a new folder in his area.

How about folder area

If using NTFS and Share Permissions, it will use the most restrictive permissions combined. So I would check and update permissions again.
I normally set specific permissions on NTFS side and give Everyone Full Control on Share, so the NTFS ones are used.

Check Share and Security Permissions on the parent folder. Windows will automaticically use whichever is more restrictive between the share and security permissions.

You may also want to go to advances in the security pane and select the option to replace security on all child objects. It could be that inheritance is disabled somewhere down your structure.

On Win2K3, this often has to do with the share permissions rather than NTFS permissions. Under Win2K, when you created a share, the Everyone group was automatically given Full Control. Under Win2K3, that's not the case - there are no default permissions set when you create a share. So, if you're sure your NTFS security is set properly, then go to the Sharing tab, click Permissions and add the Everyone group there with Full Control.

Hope this helps!
