Powershell: Need help with function that returns NTFS permissions on folder

Hi,

I have found a script that exports NTFS permissions on a folder for groups and users recursive, to a csv file. I just can't get it to run properly. I have attached the script to this question and it can be found as well here: Script

I tried to call the function from another file like this:
C:\Temp\Get-FolderRights.ps1 
Get-NTFSPermissions -ShareName "\\apps003\archive$" -DomainName "domain" | Convertto-CSV | Out-file "C:\Temp\NTFSRights.csv"

Open in new window

It gave me this error:
The term 'Get-NTFSPermissions' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, etc.etc.

I tried this as well:
C:\Temp\Get-FolderRights.ps1 Get-NTFSPermissions -ShareName "\\apps003\archive$" -DomainName "domain" | Convertto-CSV | Out-file "C:\Temp\NTFSRights.csv"

Open in new window

It did not return an error.
It created only an empty csv file.

Tried to add the parameters directly int the script, this didn't work as well.

I'm doing something wrong but I can't figure out what.
Can someone help me on this ?

Thanks in advance !

This may be a simple question, but did you attempt to load the function manually?  Try a simple copy/paste to make sure it all works and gets put into PowerShell.

You need to call the script with the dot operator. Without, the script builds its own scope, and all functions, vars etc. will not be part of your session (dismissed as soon as the script ran).
. C:\Temp\Get-FolderRights.ps1 
Get-NTFSPermissions -ShareName "\\apps003\archive$" -DomainName "domain" | Convertto-CSV | Out-file "C:\Temp\NTFSRights.csv"

Open in new window

Note that you have to call the script only once for your current session. It just defines the function here, so you can use it until you terminate the session (e.g. by typing exit)
