> Hi Rowland and thanks for your feedback. That works now only if I am logged in at the Windows machine with MYDOM\Administrator account. Thanks so far. Is there any way, so that is possible for "MYDOM\Domain Admins", too? Because I don't think we (=the domain admins) want to log out of our windows machines and relogin using the default MYDOM\Administrator account when we need to modify/apply security settings on shares.
