Inheritance Issue


Tim Chin

I'm modifying permissions on one of my Windows 2000 servers and have started
seeing a weird issue. After I modify a parent folder with my desired
permissions, child folders are not automatically inheriting them. Yes,
inheritance is turned on the child folders. However, if I go to a child
folder, turn off inheritance, remove aces, turn on inheritance, and apply -
The desired permissions are propagated and all is well on that individual

I figured that there may be a background process going on that takes care of
this, but it's been 2hrs on one volume and still no propagation. Has anyone
seen this before? Or shed any light on this issue?
