We've since migrated to Server 2003, but we need to keep an NT 4.0 BDC online
for awhile, so we are in Mixed-Mode. Problem is, strange things are
happening when you attempt to set NTFS Permissions on this NT 4.0 BDC
(Service Pack 6a).
Off of the Root of C:\ are two folders created a few moments apart as a test
to address this same problem that was discovered today:
Root Share: Everyone Full Control
Folder SHARE: Everyone Full Control on both.
NTFS Permissions on both:
Folder-1 is set for Administrator, Domain Admins at the NTFS Level. No other
Users or Groups. No one else can get in. Access denied. End of story.
Folder-2 also is set for Administrator, Domain Admins at the NTFS Level. No
other Users or Groups.
Here is where it is strange: ANYONE can breech Folder-2 across the network,
despite it's IDENTICAL permissions.
Any idea what's going on here? Same Permssions, same disk.
This has me thoroughly stumped. FWIW, this system is some seven years old;
don't know if there could be corrupted clusters causing this or not....
