Set / Change permission for all public folder children and SBS 2011
Posted on 2012-04-10
We have just created a new public folder database and copied over about 100 folders, via a 3rd party tool in outlook and sync'd it to the new public folder database on SBS 2011.
My question is, how do you change / setup permissions on all of the folders at one time? We pretty much want to allow publishing editor permissions on all 100 folders for specified users; however when I go into ESM under Default Public Folders, it only allows me to update the top level. When I do try and update the top level permissions to include the users I want to have publishing editor permissions and then check Outlook...I only see the permissions applied to the top folder, and none of the children.
How do you propagate these permission settings to all the children folders in the public folder database? Hopefully not 1 by 1 I take it =) Thanks
