RE: DACLS for software distribution points...



Domain Users != Authenticated Users. If you use Domain Users for the DACL,
users (and computers) from any other domain in the forest will not be able
to access the share. In a single-domain environment or when you only want
one domain to be able to access the share, this is fine, but otherwise,
using Authenticated Users may be a better approach.

Having said that, we've had many, many discussions on this list about the
exact differences between the Everyone group and the Authenticated Users
group, and the reality is very likely that you're just increasing your
maintenance without increasing security, depending on the composition of the
domain in question (e.g., Win2K3 versus Win2K versus NTSP4+ versus NTSP4-,
etc.). The difference between the two groups may simply be the built in
Guest account and nothing else.

What I normally do is remove the "Everyone" and replace it
with "Domain Users".. which in itself means that it will have
to be authenticated users before they can read file folders only.

Not sure how everyone else does it?

Hi all,
MS says in this article that the DACLS for software
distribution points should be EVERYONE: READ and
Administrator: Full Control, Change, Read.

Why shouldn't the EVERYONE be removed and replaced with
Authenticated Users?
I was thinking of doing this and can't really see any adverse impact.

Kind Regards
Murad Talukdar
