File permissions question - Need expert Advice
Posted on 2004-10-25
I have had trouble importing over SIDs from my NT machine to my 2003. So instead of migration, I am starting from scratch.
I've recreated all users and groups - Now I just need to setup a file structure with correct permissions.
I would like to re-structure our folders like so:
Now at present those files are on a NT server. I will move them to my XP machine and then move them to my 2003 machine. I want to at this point erase all permissions on the files so that just the administrator has acess. I want want to enable parent permissions on every single file so I can then go ahead and change the propertys of the IT folder to allow the "IT group" access. Like so
change permissions so everything is inherited from Users - Admin access on all files.
So the above file will only be accessable by the IT group.
Is this clear? How can it be done on a mass scale? 15gigs of data here. With a very deep file struture. Not all files have parent paths enabled.
