I'm not aware of an SBS-specific article about this. And now after looking,
I'm unable to find one for Windows Server 2003 in general either. Is there
some specific reason or symptom that's got you worried about this? If not,
I'd just trust that SBS installed with the proper permissions. Users don't
log in at the server, and while it would be nice to know your permissions
are set for best security, there's something to be said for not messing with
a properly functioning system. About the only advice I have is that if you
find anything relevant, please note that the default permissions on a DC,
including SBS, are likely to be different from those of a member server.
And, if you see any articles about applying security templates, I would
definitely advise against doing that - IMO it's almost certain to give you
some unexpected and unwelcome surprises.
I wonder if this is the article you're referring to, although it only
applies to the user folders:
"Home Folder" error when running the Add User Wizard http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294667
Hopefully somebody will be able to google up the default permissions better
than I could. Merv?
