How to control permissions on another server through Active Directory RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello! I have two separate VMs. One is an AD DC and the other is a file server. The file server is part of my AD domain, but I was wondering how do I go about using AD to control permissions on another server? Do I have to do it within the active directory server or do I do it on the file server?

    permissions and ACLs go from the bottom up and a broad stroke of can AD control permissions of X is, yes.

    But; i need to know what X is.
