I'm experiencing some weirdness in Windows Server Share permissions that I cannot explain. Here's an illustration of my issue:
- The user has 'Full Control' on the 'Share' permission tab
- The user is not listed at all on the NTFS permissions tab (and, as far as I can tell, they are not in any of the groups listed there. EDIT: actually, they were. See below.)
- The user can indeed create and modify files inside the shared directory and all sub-directories.
- I am testing this across our network from another server where I am logged on as the user shown with the "Full Control" permissions on the 'Share' tab
My question is, is this normal and expected? Or am I overlooking something? I thought that a user had to have both 'Share' and 'NTFS' permissions in order to have access to the shared folders and files. Can you confirm this behavior, or else tell me what to check/troubleshoot to understand this. Is this documented Windows Share permission behavior?
