We needed a way to allow administrators to upload support files to user directories using FTP with IIS. We have folder redirection and roaming profiles in place and we have created an active directory user called FTP1. This user has rights to access the user profile directories on the network share, in order to upload files to the users directory for support etc. We have created an FTP site in IIS and allowed the FTP1 user to access this site.
Uploading to user profile directories now works fine, but unfortunately there is a problem with the file security attributes. The file cannot be seen and accessed by the users who own the profile directory, because the default security attributes only allow access by FTP1 and the administrator.
How can I achieve that uploaded files via FTP are automatically accessible for read-write access for the normal user who owns the user profile directory?
I have tried setting the file rights to 777 (linux style), but without success.
