Hi,

I have the below script, works fine but when setting the ACL it only set's the ACL on the root folder and doesn't propagate down. How can I get it to set the ACL to all files and folders?

1) imports folder names from folderlist.txt
2) gets fqdn and serve rip info from input.csv
3) copies folders from 1 server location to another server location
4) copies acl per folder from location 1 and set's the acl per folder on location 2

This works great, but I need the permissions to propagate down on location 2.

Thank you.

gc folderlist.txt | % {
$user = "$_"
Import-Csv "C:\TEMP\Favorites\input.csv" | ForEach {
If ($_.FQDN -eq $env:USERDNSDOMAIN) { $file_server = $_.'Server IP' } 
}
if (Test-Path -Path "\\$file_server\profiles$\$user\Favorites")
{
copy-item -path  \\$file_server\profiles$\$user\Favorites -destination \\$file_server\userhome$\$user\Favorites -recurse -force 
copy-item -path  "\\$file_server\profiles$\$user\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures" -destination \\$file_server\userhome$\$user\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures\ -recurse -force -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
Get-Acl -path \\$file_server\profiles$\$user\Favorites\ | Set-ACL -path \\$file_server\userhome$\$user\Favorites\
Get-Acl -path  "\\$file_server\profiles$\$user\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures\" | Set-Acl \\$file_server\userhome$\$user\AppData\
remove-item -path  \\$file_server\profiles$\$user -recurse -force
}                                            
}
