Directory and Resource Administrator 7.0 SP1
Error: 'Could not modify security descriptor' when attempting to clone\create a user account with the home directory on a NetApp filer.
Assistant Admins receive the following error message when they attempt to create or clone a user account with the home directory on a NetApp filer:
Could not modify security descriptor \\servername\C$\Vol\share_name\user_name
The home directory for the new user account is created correctly, but the permissions are not applied correctly and the user does not have any permissions to the home directory.
The above error message is a result of the order in which the API calls are made. The FILE_FLAG_BACKUP_SEMANTICS is not being set before the CreateFile API to get a handle to the directory which was just created.
