Windows 2003 Server Standard Administrator Access

By croney1979 ·
Is it possible to not allow the administrator account or a person with administratrative rights access to a specific folder on the server.
The president of our company does not want the IT guy to be able to look at a few specific folders that are confidential on the server. Is this possible? How
would I fix this problem?

On the folder permissions make sure that permissions are not inherited. Then only give the President access and make him the owner of the files/folders.

It is not completely waterproof of course, because an admin can always take ownership again and redo the permissions.

We are using Veritas Backup Exec, the latest version and would this have problems doing its daily backup?

It depends what account the backup service runs under. If it is Local System, you'll have to make sure system also has read/write permissions. Same if it runs under some kind of domain account.

It is possible but only till then when u r the owner of that folder

Do One Thing

Take the ownership of that particular folder on ur name and remove the administrator from the owner ship

i think this is only the solution but As he(Administrator) take the ownership back

then he can see that folder and its contents
