Powershell NTFSsecurity () parentheses issues

Hi,

I'm using the NTFSsecurity module ( https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/1abd77a5-9c0b-4a2b-acef-90dbb2b84e85) to set permissions to a lot of folders.
The security groupnames at the company i'm working at contain parentheses like: "DLFS-SomeFolder (read)"
When i'm running the script, it gives me this error:

Add-NTFSAccess : Cannot bind parameter 'Account'. Cannot convert value "contoso.lan\DLFS-SomeFolder (read)" to type "Security2.IdentityReference2". Error: "Some or all identity references could not be translated."
At C:\Temp\Set_Permissions\SetPermissions.ps1:29 char:35

Is there a way to work around this ?

The script works fine with groupname that do not contain parentheses.

Here is the script:
#$ErrorActionPreference = "SilentlyContinue"
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
import-module ntfssecurity

#Read Users and folders from CSV
import-CSV "C:\Temp\Set_Permissions\Permissions.csv" -Delimiter ';' | foreach{

$Group = ("contoso.lan\" + $_.Groups)
$Folder = $_.Folder
$Permissions = $_.Permissions
$Folderexists = Test-Path $Folder

If ($_.inherit -eq "No"){
$Inherit = "ThisFolderOnly"
} else {
$Inherit = "ThisFolderSubfoldersAndFiles"
}

#Test if path exists
If ($Folderexists -eq $False){
    Write-Host "Folder: $Folder does not exsist." -ForeGroundColor Red
	} else { 
        Write-host "Folder:" $Folder "is available. Permissions for:" $Group "are set " -ForeGroundColor Cyan
		#Get-Item $folder | Add-Ace -Account $Group -AccessRights $Permissions -AppliesTo $Inherit
		Add-NTFSAccess $Folder -Account $Group -AccessRights $Permissions -AppliesTo $Inherit 
    } 

write-host "-------------------------------------------------------------------------" -ForeGroundColor Yellow
}

Open in new window


Thanks in advance !

I contacted the author of the module and he updated the module the same day.
So, now it works fine.

I should have suggested that. I have been positive about it being an issue with the module itself ...

The issue was in the module was a limitation of the module itself. I emailed the author and he edited the module so it can handle parenthesis now.
