Remove Linux file permissions, in windows

by xeet   Last Updated June 19, 2015 11:00 AM

I've set up a fileshare that I want my users to be able to read/write/delete to. The problem is that I'm able to list content and delete it, not read/write. Yes, this goes for several users.

The permissions look like this:


No inheritance from parent folder.
Owner: Administrators
Full control: Authenticated users, Administrators


Full control: Authenticated users, Administrators

I bet I missed something trivial. Could someone point me into the right direction?

Update: Now I only lack read/execute permissions after adding system, the group Users and creator owner to NTFS permissions settings (gave them full control).

It struck me that perhaps the problems is caused by some linux permissions? I copied all files from a linux smb share so the files still have linux perissions i guess, could that be it?

If so, how do I remove those?

If you are on a Domain, you might have better luck with the Domain Users group. Also, Windows will apply the most restrictive of the combined share and NTFS permissions, so you could also try granting Everyone full control on the share, and because the NTFS permissions are more restrictive they will take precedence.

Check if you have the user right "Bypass Traverse Checking" disabled. A quick way to check this is to logon to the server where the share is located, and run gpedit.msc > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment. This right is granted to Everyone by default.

If it were disabled, users would also need to have access to any parent folders of the share.

This turned out to be an issue with the encryption windows applies. Removing the encryption solved the whole thing:/
