dsacls - changed inheriting permissions from the parent on user object

Posted on 2007-10-11

I am trying to use the command line to reset permissions on some user objects that have the - inheriting  permissions disabled.
output from dsacls for a user shows - {This object is protected from inheriting permissions from the parent}

I have tried
dsacls "cn=user,dc=domain,dc=name" /p:n

 and I get an error

Parameter /p:n was unexpected.
The parameter is incorrect.

from the GUI I can reset the permissions without an issue. Does anyone have any examples of how I can do this.
