Depending on the scripting used, one needs to collect the printer share information.

Then I run a bat file that uses the following:

 for /F "tokens=1*" %%a in (prt.txt) do call setprtacl.cmd %%a

Which calls a .cmd file:

REM *** print-server-name area

date /t >>C:\log\log-file.log
echo. >>C:\log\log-file.log
time /t >>C:\log\log-file.log
echo. >>C:\log\log-file.log

REM *** Set owner printer to domain\prt-svr-ctrl group

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /setowner="domain\prt-svr-ctrl">>C:\log\log-file.log
 
 REM *** Add print control group

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="domain\prt-svr-ctrl"=F >>C:\log\log-file.log

REM *** Revoke section -  ***

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Revoke="Administrators" >>C:\log\log-file.log

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Revoke="Power Users" >>C:\log\log-file.log

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Revoke="Everyone" >>C:\log\log-file.log

REM  *** Add and Modify permissions section

REM *** Modify Administrators permissions from Full to print

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="Administrators"=P >>C:\log\log-file.log

REM *** Modify Power Users and Users permissions from Full to print

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="Power Users"=P >>C:\log\log-file.log
 
 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="Users"=P >>C:\log\log-file.log

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="Print Operators"=F >>C:\log\log-file.log

REM *** Set permissions for PrintQueueOperators global group
 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="PrintQueueOperators"=M >>C:\log\log-file.log

REM **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  

date /t >>C:\log\log-file.log
echo. >>C:\log\log-file.log
time /t >>C:\log\log-file.log
echo. >>C:\log\log-file.log
ren C:\log\log-file.log *.txt


For the everyone group one would do this:
subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="Everyone"=M >>C:\log\log-file.log

I do not like using the everyone group but that's me.

Thanks, but please Modify your batch file w/out all of the other stuff.....I am not revoking anything ...just adding the "modify documents" for the existing everyone's group....

To modify the everyone group the way you want just run:

The batch with tokens line to call the batch with the .cmd with the line below only.

subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="Everyone"=M >>C:\log\log-file.log

The Set ACL command actually worked very well and very fast.

c:\setacl.exe -on "\\printclustername\%print%" -ot prn -actn ace -ace "n:everyone;p:man_docs"
c:\setacl.exe -on "\\printclustername\%print%" -ot prn -actn ace -ace "n:everyone;p:print"
