CACLS permissions for subdirectories


I'm using CACLS command ro change the permissions on directories on a W2003 server. All is going well but any sub folders are not inheriting the new permissions.


cacls c:\dir1\dir2 /E /G userf

The result is user has full controll of dir2 but not dir3. Is there a switch to add to ensure that all subdirectories recieve the same permissions.
