icacls to assign permissions to ALL subfolders, even folders not inheriting access?
Posted on 2010-09-09
I am using the following command to add a group to the ACL for very large directories. The problem I am having is some of the folders have disabled access inheritance and have explicit access assigned and this group doesn't get added to that folder with the following command.
icacls.exe U:\*.* /grant DOMAIN\GroupName:(OI)(CI)F /C /T
Am I missing a switch or something? Is there a way to force it to add the group to all folders regardless if they are inheriting access? Or is there something else that is preventing the group from being applied to the folder?
