I get access deny error when I try to apply ntfs permissions to a Windows 2008 R2 Server Folder on a Islion.
What can I apply or use to fix the problem
are you trying to set permissions on an Isilon share from Windows 2008 R2 server ? Can you change permissions from another OS while being logged-in as the same user as Windows 2008 R2 server ? Make sure share permissions are set to allow you to do that (need Full control), not just folder ACLs.
That doesnt work , the problem is the top of the tree has security permissions. But some point during the copy it lost its security , when try to apply security , it come up with " Retry or cancel" when its applying security permissions.
Users cant work because of this Islion
take ownership and fix folder ACLs, if you can't do it from windows explorer you can always do it from cli
chown -R -s myactivedirectoryname\\myusername (notice two back slash)
this will recursively change file/directory ownership.
you are marking your own reply as helpful ? haha
look at permissions of top level directory, you must be inheriting ACLs that prohibit you from modifying child directory ACLs. YOu can use ls -led "directory_name> to list current ACLs.
