Changing Folder Permissions

Posted on 2011-10-21

I have several thousand projects on a Windows 20088 R2 server shared out via CIFS. I need to change the permissions of the project folders and do not want to go into each individual project folder. The project folder structure looks like this:

The permissions on folder 12000 and 12345.000 need to be:
Domain admins- Full
Storage admins- Full
Domain Users- Read

The permissions on folder1, Folder2 and Folder3 need to be:
Domain admins- Full
Storage admins- Full
Domain Users- Modify

Is there anyway to do this without going into each and every folder. I would even buy a piece of software if it wasn't too expensive. I just don't know how to proceed with this.

    Take a look at the cacls command and particularly take note of the /T option which allows you to apply the command to subdirectories.
