How can I setup DFS for some users as read only and some with full access on Windows 2008 R2. I was told I can do it with my version. But I do not know how to set the individual user's permissions.

Hi all,

Please refer to the article:

It will guide you through the process through GPO’s and scripts and also commands.

    Hello NewnanIT, Apart from the share permissions, you have the NTFS permissions of the shared file/folders. You can easily adjust NTFS (file/folder -> right click ->properties -> sharing TAB) permissions in order to achieve what you want. Even in a small environment (i don't know if that's the case) I would recommend you to create groups of users (and add users accordingly) with / without write permissions. This way it will be easier to maintain.
