I am wondering if anyone knows if it is possible, or knows how to, set folder permissions from the command line in SBS 2003.

Thanks

Jeremy

Using the built-in "cacls.exe"; for example:
cacls "C:\SomeFolder" /t /e /g SomeGroup:C
will (/t)raverse subfolders as well, (/e)dit the current ACL (instead of replacing it), and (/g)rant the group "SomeGroup" (C)hange permissions on the folder "SomeFolder".

For more detailed permissions, you can use xcacls.vbs, a download; but do NOT use xcacls.EXE to change NTFS permissions on a W2k3 machine, it produces incorrectly ordered ACEs if used with /e; use xcacls.VBS instead.
Child objects in a folder do not inherit permissions as expected when you use Xcacls.
