How Inheritance Affects File and Folder Permissions

After you set permissions on a parent folder, new files and subfolders that are created in the folder inherit these permissions. If you do not want the files and folders to inherit permissions, click This folder only in the Apply onto box when you set up special permissions for the parent folder. If you want to prevent only certain files or subfolders from inheriting permissions, right-click the file or subfolder, click Properties, click the Security tab, click Advanced, and then click to clear the Inherit from parent the permission entries that apply to child objects. Include these with entries explicitly defined here check box.

If the check boxes are not available, the file or folder has inherited permissions from the parent folder. There are three ways to make changes to inherited permissions:

  • Make the changes to the parent folder so that the file or folder inherits the permissions.
  • Click to select the opposite permission (Allow or Deny) to override the inherited permission.
  • Click to clear the Inherit from parent the permission entries that apply to child objects. Include these with entries explicitly defined here check box. When you do this, you can make changes to the permissions or remove the user or group from the permissions list. However, the file or folder does not inherit permissions from the parent folder.

How to access Domain Console without logon the domain

Sample issue: I have group policy that is locking down the computer for ALL User, Even the administrator. Now I cant access the domain network from any computers

Solution: Logon as the administrator with the same password of the domain administrator. Then access the AD Users and Computers-Connected to the domain controller. Moved the admin accounts up to the Users OU.

How to check the group policy settings and result

You can use gpresult.exe which displays the resulting set of policies that were forced on the client for the specified user at logon.1.

How to manage inherited permissions

By default, Everyone has Full Control for a NTFS folder and the permission is inherited from the root folder on the partition or volume. To block Permissions Inheritance, click to clear the Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object check box.

How to change the password policy

For local computer, run MMC or gpesit.msc. go to Local Computer Policy>Computer Configuration>Windows Settings>Security Settings>Account Policies>Password Policy. For domain controller, go to Default Domain Security Setting>Security Settings>Account Policies>Password Policy.
