How can I replace a user's permissions in File Server Management (Server 2003) from one user to another?
Posted on 2014-10-24
We let a person go who was a high level member of a particular department. This person had disproportionately assigned permissions in the department's main share.
We have since hired a new person to fill that spot, but we would prefer some method of replacing the user on those permissions instead of having to go through all 200+ folders and we cannot have them inherit these permissions from the parent directory...the permissions were set up by my predecessor and I don't have time to sort out everyone else' permissions.
While the ideal solution would be to start from scratch with the permissions and go from there, I have been tasked to find a way to replace those permissions from olduser to newuser. How can I go about this without going through the folders 1 by 1?
