Hi,
Where do you want to turn the inheritance off? For files/folder? Exchange
Mailboxes?

Regards,
Damian

Files and folders... I am trying to lock down a folder on a shared drive so
that only 2 people have access.. I can't get around inheriting permissions..

Hi,
If you open the properties of the folder, then you go to the Security tab,
and finally click on Advanced you will then be able to stop the inheritance
by unchecking "Allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propagate
to this object and all child objects. Include these with entries explicitly
defined here". At that point you will be prompted if you want to clear all
the permissions or copy them as they are. Make sure you leave access for
an administrator (or fallback user) and the account that is used to perform
the backup of the system.

What type of problem are you seeing?

Regards,
Damian
