How to: Change the Access Control List Permissions for a Directory

Visual Studio 2008

If users are being denied access to a Web site or are receiving unexpected logon challenges, the security permissions that are assigned to the built-in users group might not be correctly configured. This group must have Read, List Folder Contents, and Read & Execute permissions for each Web site directory and virtual directory in Team Foundation.

The following table lists the default path for each Web site:

Web site

Default directory (Local path)

Default Web Site

..\Inetpub\wwwroot

   Reports

..\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.n\Reporting Services\ReportManager

NoteNote:
The number that is assigned to the MSSQL directory varies depending on the SQL Server instance.

   ReportServer

..\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.n\Reporting Services\ReportServer

The number that is assigned to the MSSQL directory varies depending on the SQL Server instance.
