While you’d think Microsoft is luring organizations into using their cloud services as the main method for sharing files, most organizations have no need to share files beyond their organization’s borders or to access files in a web browser; as such, most organizations rely on file servers to share files among their employees. Today, I’ll show you how to transform a Server Core installation into a Dynamic Access Control-aware file server.
Access-Denied Assistance is a new feature in Windows Server 2012 that makes it easier for users to get help for “access denied” errors with shared file resources. On the other side of the equation, administrators are given clear information to resolve such permissions problems.
In the last part of this series about Dynamic Access Control (DAC) in Windows Server 2012 we use the Effective Access tool in Windows Server 2012 to test DAC.
In Part 4 of our Dynamic Access Control series we will develop and deploy a DAC Central Access Policy.
In the last part of my File Server Resource Manager series, I’ll discuss the File Management Tasks feature that allows you to apply actions to files based on classifications or other attributes.
