Hello,

 

I'm planing a file server for 40 users with server 2012. There will be 15 major folders to be shared among different department. The relevant folders must be mapped to relevant user and the user will be member of different groups. 

 

What would be the best strategy to accomplish this.

 

Thanks, Chanaka

Are you setting up folder redirection, or just granting users access to folders and file shares?

 

Set NTFS permissions for domain local groups created for that purpose. Add users to global groups, then add the global groups to the relevant domain local groups to gain access to folders. If you are setting up folder redirection, you'll need to set that in Group Policy.

Thanks for the comment - I'm not planing folder redirection but GPO for the mapped drives.

 

Best Regards, Chanaka

I would use group policy preferences for that task. Its the newest way of mapping such folders, printers, and is filled with a lot of useful stuff. I love it myself.

Use the same domain local groups you use to map the NTFS permissions to scope the drive mapping group policy as well. Makes things easier to troubleshoot if something goes wrong.

Well as you are using a server simply use a GPO to map the drives bvut then target them using either location or SID of the group.

Simple mate and the most effective.

GroupA uses drive F:, GroupB uses drive F: and Z: etc etc, then assign Share and NTFS permissions based on SID of the group.
