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:

    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.
