I have an issue that I find quite odd.  W2K8R2 AD network and 15 users.  I have various group policies and security groups established and all has been well for the past 5 years.  I recently needed to restrict a couple users to only one particular client machine so didn't find that to be so difficult using the user's profile settings.  Wrong.....

On our file server I have a shared folder established with subfolders for each individual user named the same as their logon name:  firstname.lastname.  These were created to the users could use one of two MFP's we have and scan documents to their folder.  When I restricted them to only the one client machine they typpically work on, nothing could be scanned from either MFP to their particular folder.  There are no security settings on the structure, just basic share settings so any one user can access the scan folder of any other user.  I know this may sound risky but it is general information that all users already have access to.

Question then is this:  When restricting a user to a single client machine via their profile settings, why do the access permissions for the MFP's get removed from their particular network shared folder causing the MFP to not be able to write a scan there?

Would using a command prompt give you more specific options?  The takeown & cacls commands come to mind.

I'm not so sure that would help.  The problem only occurs from either of the MFP machines and since the machines do not have an AD account I wouldn't have any idea of how to change this behavior.  I can use a file browser from any of the non-administrator machines and copy files into either of the users folder with no problem.  The only thing I do not have for the share permissions is the "Everyone" account and had not remembered to try that before I left work today.  Could that be it?

The 'everyone' account is certainly worth a try.  I found what seems to be overly simple but I'll post the link anyway.

Applied the everyone group but alas no good with that either.  As for the printing as a service article, not what I'm having an issue with.  Sniffed around for quite a while in group policy but nothing there that would affect a Bizhub MFP from sending a scanned document to a shared folder.
