Set permissions by file name/Inherit Ownership MS Server 2008
Posted on 2012-04-10
Kind of a two part question here. Need to find a way to :
1.) set permissions on folders based on folder name. Scenario - I have hundreds of site based folders, and inside of each one of these folders are four folders, each with the same name
and so on.
I'm trying to find a way to set a permission on every folder under 'sites' named 'Folder A'. I've tried using an XCacl VbScript, but it errors out. Wondering if I am running into ownership issues, as folders are created by different people, which leads to
2) Does anyone know of a way to do a bulk change of folder ownership, so I can set ownership on a parent folder and have all child folders inherit the ownership? I know the chown command works for linux, but havent been able to find anything for MS.
