    DFS DfsrPrivate

    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 !

    Hi

    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?

    Regards
    Sukh

    Hi

    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.

    Regards

    Hi

    Can you try subinacl /subdirectories d:\staff\teachers\*.* /setowner=amesbury\administrator

    Then check the owner permissions on the folder?

    Hi

    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.

    Regards
    Sukh
