Hi all,

Need some help please, we have a lovely audit coming up don't you just love them? one of things that needs to be done is to change Security permissions on each 2000 server, 52 servers needs permissions set and there are 23 permissions to be set on each server i.e c$, c:\winnt, etc. They are all the same for each one.

The question is when you set the permissions where do the they get written to the registry? or a file(s) or is there a automated way of doing it i.e using scripts or software. The reason being if i could duplicate the settings from the files or registry etc it would life alot easier. instead of manaully doing it on each one.

can this be done?

please advise

    The permissions are actually set in the file, not in the registry.

    You could create a batch file using xcacls to set permissions progmatically and run it on each of your servers once you have it developed.
