Re: Sharepoint Security - Help!!!!!

Hi Cris, The users that I want restricted are not shown as Admistrators, only
myself and two others are show as Administrators (this is the same as the
past). Do you think that it makes a differents that they just uploaded a
backed up version of sharepoint? Kevin

Go to http://companyweb
Click on Site Settings
In the top section "Administration"
Click on Manage Users

Here you can see each user and what Site Group they are assigned to

I tend to believe you are going to find folks assigned to the Administrator's group, but let me know

We can go from there

Hi Chris, I am in Calgary Alberta Canada
When they did the migration from one server to another it went from Standard
to Premium, The premissions I am specificly talking about is acess to the
differnt sharepoint document libraries that we have in our internal company
website. Prior to the upgrade these differnt libriares had defined
permissions as to who could look in them. Example I have one Library that has
broker commisons in it so I only wanted the broker and head office personal
to access this section. With the old server it was set by clicking on the
"modify settings and columns" and then on "change permissions for this
document" When I look in this section I see only the people I want accessing
this section. But anyone can still enter this section even though they are
not listed.

A couple of years ago when I set up the first server I noticed that the
permissions didn't work either, it was because I had added all the users as
"power users" when I deleted them from being a member of this sercurity group
(at the "User" INterface, not in sharepoint) the sharepoint permissions
started to work. So I think that it might be something like this again except
they are not members of "power users" however they are members of some groups
that I don't know want they are. So maybe these groups have power user like
permissions and if so how do I check.

And or anything else you think I should like at. Kevin
