I want Domain Admins to take ownership of all files and folders on a server.

What is the best way to do this?  Be specific.

Hi lpenrod,
use subinacl:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=E8BA3E56-D8FE-4A91-93CF-ED6985E3927B&displaylang=en

An example command might be:
subInAcl /outputlog=C:\subacownlog.txt /subdirectories  \\YOURSERVER\%folder%\*.* /setowner="Domain Admins"
but there is also a nice guide with many options in the download packet.
