When selecting permission for a folder such as Guest or Sample an error is generated.

Checked all UNIX permissions.

Newer folders do not generate an error.
Recently created another folder and put reports under it.
The new folder is at the same level as Guest folder and from that folder can successfully press the permissions and it works fine.
