I have to change the permissions on a whole root level folder and filter them down etc... Normally this wouldnt be a problem and its click, click and click and its done. Now I can do this process using the same method, but want to get this all done in one weekend.
However, this folder does not sit on a physical volume. Its Tiered over 2 NetApp CIFs shares and a HP NAS Server using a Acopia ARX500 to present the data as a logical volume.
The root folder in question is roughly around 20Tb in size and its on logical volume on a tiered storage system.
So using the normal method of change permissions in windows GUI takes a year and a day and often crashes the box. I know xcacls.exe is another method for doing this but i have never used it.
What would be the most effect solution for this problem?
