folder created by GPO not giving user access RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a GPO that puts a scan folder on the users desktop and creates a folder on the file server under the scanning share labeled by their %username%.

    So when the user logs on the computer applies the GPO and the shortcut is created on the users desktop and the folder is created on the file server  \\fileserver\scanning\%username%

    This worked great until we moved all the scanning folders over to a new file server. Now the new folder is created for the username but the user cannot access the folder until an admin goes in and adds the user to the permissions with full control.

    The user should have full control of the folder when it's created. Any idea what I need to change to make this work properly again?

  •  HI,

    Before going further, I would appreciate your help in clarifying the following situations:

    Would you please tell which way did you used to migrate the  moved the scanning folders? Any possible, the permission on the folder was changed?

    Do you created the shortcut and folder both using the GPO?

  • I created the new share and copied the old folders to the new server share. Yes the GPO creates the Folder in the share and the shortcut on the users desktop. The users that were copied over seem to work fine, but the new users when they sign on the GPO is creating the folder and the shortcut but the user cannot access the folder until I go in and add them to the security tab.

  • Hi,

    After the copy the old folders, did you set permission again ?

  • This is exactly what I was looking for. This has fixed the issue by allowing me to set the permissions on the share via group policy. Thank you.
