Change share permissions remotely
Posted on 2006-05-25
I'm a network admin with about 100 computers that I watch. I want to change sharing permissions on a specific folder on each and every computer. Basically everyone has read access to this folder and I would like to change it so that only a specific user has access to that folder and if at all possible I'd like to change this stuff remotely so i dont have to go around to each computer individually to do this. Basically I know how to do it if I'm at the person's computer - I right click on the folder, click on properties, sharing tab, permissions, and i add in/remove names there. However, if I'm in someone else's computer through \\computername\c$ and I right click on the folder, I don't get the sharing tab.
Also, I can remote into their system as admin, but I don't want to disrupt their work.
