Solved Ownership on files sharing

November 13, 2012 at 20:23:28
Specs: Windows server 2008

Hi, Im new on windows Server 2008 and i heve set a file sharing role with group permissions.
EX: share = general
permission = Users (group)
group User = alex, robert.

on my (network)client i can connect my share as a network drive but when robert create file or folder ''X'', alex can't read/write this file/folder (acess is denied). im sure that this is a ownership problem. My goal is to have a folder shared over the network that every user can read/write on every files.

I was using Ubuntu server before, and for those who know this: 0777. this is what i want as a create mask on my windows server

Permissions inherit down to all subfolders and files unless you explicitly tell it not to. You need to set the share permissions to Everyone: Full Control, and then grant your security group Full Control on all child objects using NTFS permissions. Ownership shouldn't matter when a user has Full Control on an object.

Post what your permissions are set to currently. You can troubleshoot permission problems by using the Effective Permissions tab.

Wouldn't that be the everyone group?

I dont want everybody to have acess on this folder. I want to have a folder where file can be share with R/W/X access for user allowed on that share, In pratice I want Alex to save a file in this folder and later on, Robert will be able to read write on that file, or delete it...

That's not what you said. Here's your quote:

"My goal is to have a folder shared over the network that every user can read/write on every files."

Everyone that is in the user group. But anyways on a everybody share, file get a owner when created, so others user can't r w x on that file
