On first glance this may look somewhat worrying, however the Users group has somewhat limited NTFS rights. For example, if you try and create a folder in the C: The ApplicationPoolIdentity still needs to be able to read files from the windows system folders otherwise how else would the worker process be able to dynamically load essential DLL's. With regard to your observations about being able to write to your c:
This seems to do the trick with perhaps a caveatto find all folders that user "someuser" has access to, in this example on the C drive, using the built-in Windows icacls command: That last one is an L, and these flags can be upper or lower-case. I sought the same answer as the OP, and found this entry, but was bummed to see only an offer based on a downloadable tool.
Like others, I preferred to use something built-in, and I found it, in this icacls tool. And I have confirmed it works on Windows Server, and Windows 7, so I suspect it will work as well in ServerWindows 8, and so on.
The resulting list will be folders indicated line after line, such as: Note that if you run this as a user who does not itself have permissions to some directories being traversed, you will get errors interleaved in the results such as: And if you may be searching an entire drive, that could result in hundreds of such errors, making it hard to find within them the results.
Some may think the answer is to run the command line as administrator, but that will simply cause far more such errors to appear, as you will now be traversing folders that were previously hidden.
Now, if you were interested in hiding those errors, you won't be able to use a find command to pipe only the results which DO succeed those which DO refer to "SID found"because the errors will NOT be filtered out by the pipe to the find command.
So the example above would become: Just do beware that some of the folders which generated such errors, which errors are now hidden, may well be folders that the named "someuser" DOES have access to but which YOU do not. So you may want to think twice about simply ignoring these errors.
That possibility does potentially limit the value of this answer, I realize. If anyone with more familiarity with things would like to expand on or correct my answer I'd welcome it.Each application pool in IIs creates its own secure user folder with FULL read/write permission by default under c:\users.
Open up your Users folder and see what application pool folders are there, right click, and check their rights for the application pool virtual account assigned. I'm trying to mount an hfsplus filesystem in a Xubuntu VM (kernel version generic) but when I type mount -o remount,rw /dev/sdb3 in command line it returns not mounted or bad option.
I'm running a server, and I need to give read/write access to a particular directory to a single user.
I've tried the following: sudo adduser abcd sudo groupadd abcdefg chown arteensevilla.comg /var/www/. Also beware giving global write access with the chmod command if you have not as trustworthy users/scripts running on the server etc - I recommend changing the group or the user permissions instead.
If using chmod please read up on this and understand what it is doing. Ubuntu, like other Linux distributions, restricts access to files and system settings by default.
Each user account has read and write access to its own files and read access to some system files. Ubuntu, like other Linux distributions, restricts access to files and system settings by default. Each user account has read and write access to its own files and read access to some system files.
