I'm very new to windows server. I'm a software engineer but since we don't have a real sysadmin I'm supposed to figure out everything that is slightly computer related (you know how it is...).
I need to set permissions for a group on a specified folder. It works for a single user. I set both the sharing and security permissions for the user and only this user can access the folder. I'd like to manage multiple users with groups instead of adding each user individualy.
So I fire up Active Directory Users and Computers console, Create a group then drag all the wanted users in the group. The "Members" tab shows everyone correctly.
I try to repeat the steps where I add the users to the folder permission/security but the users can't access it. When a user, member of the group, on a remote machine, tries to access the folder, it says that the user does not have the permission to access that folder.
There is no sharing permission/ntfs security setting to deny anywhere for that folder.
In sharing permissions there is my new group and the original owner of the folder (single user). In the security tab there are the default users/groups
- CREATOR OWNER
Also there are the original owner and my new group
