Keep losing Trustee rights to file

Hello, have an HP Proliant running NW6.5 SP7. I have a file on it that keeps losing it's trustee rights and I can't figure out why. The file is in a folder only 3 folders deep. I have tried giving a user eplicit trustee rights to the file and also created an NDS Group that I gave explicit rights for as well and added the user to this group. The rights stay attached for a day maybe 2 then disappear. I have given rights like this for years and have never seen this happen. The user is on another server in the tree, same container, but that should not matter. We just updated to edir 8.7.3.10. I have done dsrepair on both servers..the one with the user and the one containing the file he needs access to. Has anyone seen this before or have any ideas?

Sounds like something is deleting and recreating the file. Is it perhaps an Office document? If so this will happen every time someone updates it, as Office renames the original file and writes a new one, which loses all explicit assignments.

Hi Butley,

Did you try giving him rights to the directory that contains the file? If so, and it's still happening, are you (and is it) in a position where you could temporarily give him (s)upervisor rights to that directory? That would rule out an irf/irm issue.

When you ran dsrepair, did you have it check volume and trustee assignments as well?

Hope this helps,
Sam
