Append New Permissions To Subfolders (inherited or not)
Posted on 2010-01-07
Greetings, Experts. I am in need of some advise on how to proceed with a unique solution related to permissions on server folders on our Windows Server 2003 file server.
PRESENTLY: We have a server folder called "Company Resources" with 10's of sub-folders covering unique topics for our company. While some of these sub-folders are inheriting permissions from the parent Company Resources folder, some are not. I've got quite the nest of folders here. LOL!
GOAL: I am seeking a solution whereby I can "overlay" (add) a new security group with Full permissions on *all* sub-folders inherited or not. I'm not referring to a "replace" of permissions here. The existing permissions on all sub-folders (inherited or not) would remain unchanged, except for the addition of this new security group with Full permissions.
Please forgive me if this is not 100% clearly stated. If it does make sense, is there a way to make this happen, exactly the way that I stated above?
Thank you , Experts!
