using script to create share and permission for folders in Windows 2008 server.

Posted on 2011-09-15
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I need to create a lot of folders in a WIN2K8 server volume and plan to use a script.  

Previously, I use "netshare" to create shares, "cacls" to assign domain accounts to folders, and "subinacl /subdirectories /setowner" command to assign ownership to the folders.

Will the above commands still valid in WIN2K8?  I will use a cmd script as I am not good in VB.

Please advise.  Thanks.

Hello, I think its ICACLS in Server 2008 and NET SHARE is still the same.

If it is VB script , we can use File system objcet concept
By creating File system object , we can create folders during runtime,
set fso = createobject("scripting.filesystemobject")
fso.createfolder "Path of folder need to create"
set fso = nothing
