So I'm looking for some advice/guidance on my issue:
Our file server was originally setup incorrectly by providing permissions to individual users rather than than groups. Ive been in the process of redoing the permissions manually, but I'd prefer to fix it in a bulk fashion.
I have a list of directories and users that are allowed access.
Directory,Group,Rights \\server2\storage\REPORTS\*,Mgmt,Full Access \\server2\storage\REPORTS\*,HR,Full Access \\server2\storage\IT\*,Tech,Full Access etc
So my plan was to write a batch file using a long list of cacls commands with my list of directories and groups.
Does this sound like a sound plan, or is there a much better method/tool to use?
PS- I notice some folders/files do not have the permissions for CREATOR OWNER and SYSTEM. Should I add these to my list as well?
