Need an easy way to change security on all AD users

Hi, I just installed BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Part of the install requires granting the besadmin AD account "SendAs" permission to the root of Active Directory.

After I did this I found that the permission was not propagating down to the users. The only way I have found to fix is to go to each user and check the box to allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propagate to this object.

I need an easier way to make this change to ALL of my users at once. The users are spread around in many OUs. I cannot afford to set this on a user by user basis.

Thanks!

 I usually run an command on the DC to setup send as permissions, BUT this can take up to 90 minutes to take place.

dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=youraddomain,dc=local" /G "Domain\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

I usually do this on all the BES servers I work on.    

dsacls in part of the support tools.    I usually stop the BES router service for 20 minutes after running the command.

As you probably figure you need to customize:

dc=youraddomain
dc=local
Domain\BESadmin
