Problems with permissions on file-repositories

Hello Forum,

i'm getting confused while i'm testing the differences between the acl/w2k security managers.

My Konfig:




(this user has full-access to all docs)

then i configured 3 File-Reps, all pointing to the same share (

EP6 no security-manager

EP6_ACL acl security manager

EP6_W2K w2k security manager

(Portal-User mapped to the windows-User)

I expect:

- EP6 access to all documents

- EP6_ACL access to documents where i have granted access to my portal user via permissions in the KM-Content

- EP6_W2K access to documents where the mapped windows user has been granted access on the filesystem

This is what i get:

All three Repostories behave in the same way.

- my Portal User can only access Files, where the
domain\user has been granted access

- it seems, that the assigned security-managers didn't work

- EP6_ACL it makes no difference if i assign restrictions to the KM-ACLs

- EP6_W2K it makes no difference if i assign permisons for my windows-user on the os

Where is my fault.

Do I have to deal with some caching-problems?

Do i have to use three different Locations on the filehost?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Frank,

in the rough context, check this new paper that describes how Windows File Servers can be integrated into the SAP KM platform using SSO and the WebDAV repository manager: of windows file servers into the sap km platform using sso and the webdav repository manager.pdf

Are you using a system principal (eg´: system admin)? If you have used so, security managers are bypassed, everything is granted to the user.
