is there any possibility to set nt4 file rights on the command line (e.g. in a batch file) and what is the name of this command?
my problem is that I have to set the same rights on 36 workstations and I wanted to do this with a batch job.

Hi pman.

In the usual Windows NT terminology rights apply to users and permissions apply to files and other resource objects.

So I guess you are asking for a command line utility that will help you set file permissions. CACLS.EXE included with Windows NT will do this for you. Type "cacls /?" for help on how to use it.

This utility does not take the server name as a parameter, so if you need to set permissions on files on another server than the command is being run from you need to make a network drive connection to the share where the file is before using cacls.

I hope this is the answer to your question.

Cheers
JG
