Create network folder, share it and set permissions for it with a logon Script

I've created a logon script that creates a folder on a server, shares it and maps it to a users drive. I'm having trouble setting the permissions on that folder. I can set the permissions on folders and files I create in that shared folder but I can't change the permissions of the folder that is shared. It has inherited permissions that I can't change. I've tried xcacls and cacls without luck. I'm very new at this.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use the /i switch with xcacls to turn off inheritance on the folder.
