What are John's permissions with NTFS ?

By tbillmalone ·
Scenario:
Folder x has the following permissions set:
Sales = NTFS - Read
Managers = NTFS - Modify
Users = Share - Full Control
John is a member of Sales, Managers and Users. Based on the permissions that are set what will John's effective permissions be when he access the folder over a network? Will the permissions change any if he can log on locally to the system where the folder is stored?
My Answer is John will be able to access the computer over the network based on the NTFS permissions specifically, Managers because NTFS permissions are cumulative and his effective permission will be Modify.
If John logs on to the computer locally his effective permissions will be Full Control.
Is this correct??

Hint: NTFS permissions are cumulative except for deny (deny always take precedence even over administrative privileges, so watch out with deny's you can lock your self out!)

You are partly correct. Re-think the "log on locally". Remember it doesn't matter whether you are on the network or logged in locally for NTFS permissions. Share permissions are only applicable when you connect via a mapped drive.
