Shared Staff Area
I have just setup a new staff shared area, which hopefully we'll be able to keep manageable.
I have created all subject and department folders within the root share but I want to disallow staff creating any new ones on the root.
We want to allow staff to be able to create files and folders within the folders below and will restrict folders with NTFS permissions.
Does anyone have this setup already? if so could you send me a couple of screenshots of the following so that I can replicate it here:
Folder share permissions
Root folder permissions
Any folder within the share permissions
We have our staff in department groups, meaning the STAFF group has read only permission across all folders.
Each department group then has read/ write for files within their departments areas, (this is then inherit within the departments own folder). Heads of departments can also create folders within their own deartment areas.
Is that what you are trying to achieve?
We have the same as @Achandler above, so assuming you are doing that-
1) Share permissions on root set to All Staff Full Control (remove Everyone access)
2) NTFS permissions on root set to All Staff Read & Execute
3) NTFS permissions on each department's folder set to Modify for that specific department
This is what I was trying to achieve and now have. I had some of the permissions wrongly set when I posted.
