Reposting this because there was no reaction.

Is it normal that share permissions cannot be set on an AD-DC?
Computer Management of Win7 connects to the DC, but aborts when I click 
on "shares".

The shares are accessible, and I can set ACLs in the file system, just 
not the share permissions. Is the default that everybody has full 
access? Then maybe I just don't need it anyway.
