W2k Server. User name changed, is there anyway to automate the permission change throughout the file structure
Posted on 2006-06-21
We are running windows 2000 server as a file server.
Recently one of our users has got married and as a result required their username changed. What I would like to know is if there is any software/scripting that can be used to trawl through the whole file structure and basically replace the old username with the new username, including copying the exact permissions on each of these files/folders.
If this is not possible is there any way to print out a directory listing that will show me the permissions used throughout each directory so I do not have to search though all of them manually.
It is quite urgent as the user wants to be able to use her new name straight away.
Any help would be appreciated.
