Changing Multiple share Permissions

Changing Multiple share Permissions

Changing Multiple share Permissions


I have a server that has a whack of shared folders. I would like to add the administrator account to each of them. The previous admin only allowed user accounts with Full Control. Is there a command line tool that i can use to do this? I have tried subinacl but is does not work on NT 4.0.


RE: Changing Multiple share Permissions

I've seen some VB scripts that other admins use to manage security.

the place to start looking is Microsoft "scripting Guy"


RE: Changing Multiple share Permissions

Actually, a little digging and I found this solution. It worked perfectly.

RMTSHARE \\servername\sharename$ Grant domain\Administrator:Full

Working with a share list I dumped it into Excel, tidied it up then created a CMD file. . Took 5 seconds and 100 shares were fixed.
