Permissions problem

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.security (More info?)

We are running a Windows 2000 and Win 2000 Server
enviroment. We have given a user full control over a
folder and all the sub-folders contained in it. The user
wants to be able to change the permission settings for
just those folders. It worked perfectly for about 3 days
but then for someone reason it stopped. Nothing has been
changed and we have removed and added the user back in.
We have setup a group of Admins for that folder but still
nothing works. The domain admins group can change the
folder permissions with no problem. Any idea on what we
are missing? Many Thanks.

    Hard to say. Did the folder still show that the user had permission to change
    permissions at the time the access failed?? Make sure his group membership does not
    include a group that has deny permissions to the folder and check both share and ntfs
    permissions [also check advanced ntfs permissions for the folder], or that he was
    removed from a group that gave him access. Look in Event Viewer for any errors in the
    system or application log. Though it can be tedious to look through the security log,
    it may help to enable auditing of object access on that server and then enable
    auditing on that folder for change permissions for success and failure. -- Steve
