I've read up on the IIS7 permissions and have a clear understanding of the new user and group. However, what is confusing me is what is happening with the folder permissions.
I have a directory in one of our sites which appears to have inherited IUSR permissions from its parent. Upon inspection, the inherited permissions is coming all the way from drive C. But when reviewing drive C, the ISUR is not there in its permissions, not even in effective permissions.
This is concerning. Why would drive C even have ISUR permissions assigned? We never set them. And: Why is the web folder we are trying to configure telling us its inherited from C? Furthermore, the web folder is very nested, and all of its parent folders don't have the ISUR inherited. Um?
If anyone can shed a light on what is happening that would be appreciated.
