Group Membership not giving file rights

Any ideas?
I have a user who is a member of several groups. Each group has file/folder rights associated but when I check the users effective rights to those folders - nothing (which corresponds to the reality). Other users in the group can see the folders and if I check the membership of the groups the user appears there (not a case of the user object thinks it has a set of memberships and the group thinks the user isn't a member). NO IRF's are involved and the user is a member of the only group to have rights to the folder. I'm deeply confused here, if the user is a member of a group which has rights to a folder on the file system then the user has the rights to that folder that the group has. Any idea what's wrong?

Additional.
I've deleted the user object and recreated it to no avail, effective rights still say the user has no rights to the folder.

Re: Group Membership not giving file rights

It's not the group membership that gives you the rights, it's the "Security
Equals" attribute - better check there

You're sure that all _four_ attributes are correct? The user has two that
point to the group, and the group has two that point to the user.

Is the group corrupt or damaged somehow? Use iMonitor to view it and
check the attributes there. Using iMonitor, walk around the replica ring
to ensure that the group is correct and consistent on all replicas.

Create a replacement group with the same rights - can also be a corruption in the trustee assignments or a ring constancy issue. Quicker way to check that is with a newly created group with the same rights.

Re: Group Membership not giving file rights

Have you tried adding the user to the group /as well/ as adding the group to the user...
Which version of ConsoleOne are you using?
