Ok so i have been putting into place a DFS for backing up
I made a couple of mistakes on the first attempt and had to remove the replication group
when i recreated the group the replication did not work, when i checked the logs it was giving a file permission error
so i thought i would start from scratch
i deleted all the replication groups and left for propagation
I then went and tried to delete the DfsrPrivate folder from said replication folders
it deletes all apart from the ConflictAndDeleted folder, giving me a folder permission error
it will not even allow me to take ownership
until i get this sorted i am unable to replicate that folder
Source server : 2003 rc2
destination server 2008 rc2

Its just the standard permission denied error
I have tried local admin as well as domain admin but neither work
Whats odd is I cant even take ownership of said folder !

Can you post the exact error message and check the Event Logs too?

Nothing in event viewer
Have stopped DFS service on both servers

Can you stop all DFS services and ensure no replication is occuring and then see if you can take ownership of the folder?
Also, can you confirm that all you want to be able to do is delete this folder?

OK all Services stopped on all server in the domain
when i go to take ownership i get the following
And yes all i want to do is delete, as I can not redo and restart the replication of that folder until I do

Please use Download details: SubInACL (SubInACL.exe) and download the utility.
The execute the following command:
subinacl /onlyfile "\\?\c:\path_to_problem_file" /setowner=domain\administrator /grant=domain\administrator=F
Where c:\path_to_problem_file is the path to the problem folder.

Again permission issue
I then tried this
subinacl //subdirectories "D:\Staff\Teachers\DfsrPrivate" /setowner=amesbury\administrator /grant=amesbury\administrator=F
Starting to do my head in this one
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Resource Kits\Tools>subinacl //subdirectories "D:\Staff\Teachers\DfsrPrivate" /setowner=amesbury\administrator grant=amesbury\ad

Can you try subinacl /subdirectories d:\staff\teachers\*.* /setowner=amesbury\administrator
Then check the owner permissions on the folder?
28th February 2011, 12:42 PM #11
lol that took a while
anyway done that and still cant get permission on that darn folder
28th February 2011, 12:45 PM #12
Have you checked the ownership on that folder? What is it set to now? Is the owner the same as before? If yes, can you try another username.
Let me know if this is working then we can move on.
28th February 2011, 01:06 PM #13
its sets new owner on "dfsrprivate" but still no access to conflictanddeleted
28th February 2011, 01:12 PM #14
Can you now do the following and let check the permission on the folder.
subinacl /subdirectories d:\staff\teachers\*.* /grant=amesbury\administrator=f
28th February 2011, 02:46 PM #15
Done that, no change
btw thanks for you help on this so far
