How to set access rights for shared folder+domain rights

by Tempik / October 22, 2007 2:27 AM PDT

Hi all
I have a big problem.
I need to share one folder on remote computer eg. Documents.
Let's say that I have 3 groups MEN,WOMEN,ALL(Men+Women)
I will give local security rights(remote comp) for this folder that group ALL will have read access and MEN also write access.
Now, how about to share this folder to be available with given rights on another computers???
When I give read access for this shared folder for ALL, then MEN can't write:-(
I can't add to shared permissions MEN for write access because for some child folders(subfolders-these folders are not shared, only parent) I need only read access for ALL and write access for WOMEN. Also I can't deny write for ALL because DENY is more powerfull than ALLOW, so then when I have one subfolder with read access for ALL(I have to deny write because it is allowed through shared permissions of parent) and also MEN group with write access, MEN are unable to write:-((
Is it possible to apply restrictions with priority? Then it will be easy to set it. But don't know about this oportunity.

In short...I need shared folder Documents to be available for more computers and in this folder more subfolders with given rights for write and read.
Problem is when e.g. ADMINS are also in ALL group, then I am unable to restrict read access for ALL and add write access for ADMINS.

Thanks for any info

On the server (Windows 2003 or such)

Make a new group, add these users to that group, etc...

If you don't have a server, it was not clear in your post.

I use WIN2003 server sorry.
But this is not solution. I need read access for ALL and also write for MEN which is part of ALL so when I DENY WRITE for ALL I also DENY WRITE for MEN. So if I create new group, effect will be the same because DENY is more powerful than ALLOW.
And DENY have to be applied because I ALLOWED WRITE for shared parent folder for ALL so I need to redo this access by DENY:-(
If I only allow READ access for shared parent folder for group ALL, then also MEN with write acces for subforder/child will have READ ONLY access:-((
Any solution?

Hope that this post was more understandable:-)

You need to work through your thoughts on permissions. I'd grab your book from your classes on this and refresh your memory.

Why would I deny "all"?
