2. Give Everyone Full Control and click OK. Click OK again to close the Advanced Sharing dialog.

3. Click on the Security tab, click Edit, Add and browse and locate the service account we configured for Unidesk Active Directory authentication.  You may opt to utilize a separate account for the file share.  Grant the service account Modify permissions since we want to allow only this account (beyond administrators) to modify content in this share. Click OK.
