There appear to be two steps to be followed if one wishes to allow Administrators to have access to User Folders that reside on the server through Folder Redirection:
- Set up permissions on the shared folders
- Set up the GPO
KB288991 gives details for doing so on Windows Server 2003. These instructions do not, however, seem to fit Windows Server 2012 Essentials. In particular, when following the instructions on setting permissions, part 5 poses problems, which instructs one to do the following:
[...] clear the Allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propagate to this object and all child objects. Include these with entries explicitly defined here. check box.
On Windows Server 2012, there appears to be no such check box. What is the equivalent?
