Grant GPO user full access to specific local directory (using GPO)
Posted on 2007-08-09
I am using a Windows Server 2003 domain. I have two questions within one question. First and most importantly, I need to know how to grant normal users (teachers) FULL access to a specific local directory (C:\EXAMPLE). There is a program that they must run and have access to that directory, but we don't want them to be able to write to other places. Right now the program will not run due to this restriction. I was able to get it to work by MANUALLY granting that regular user permission by right clicking and and then doing sharing and security.
Secondly, I would like to know how to write a script to copy a shortcut to the desktop of each of the normal users. I have the .lnk file on a shared directory on the server. I have an idea to use a VBS but I don't know how that should be written. Can anyone tell me exactly how to write that?
Your help is greatly appreciated. I need to have these up and running in only TWO DAYS and am beginning to get worried. The FIRST question is much more important than the second!
