We need to set permissions on users' directories on a Windows 2000 Server. This happens regularly enough and they must also be set in the order below or the backups crap out. This is the basic script:
XCACLS foldername /g Administrators:OF /T /C /Y XCACLS foldername /E /g "DOM\Enterprise Admins":OF /T /C /Y XCACLS foldername /E /g SYSTEM:OF /T /C /Y XCACLS foldername /E /g STAFF\username:ORWEDC /T /C /Y
My problem is that this script doesn't work on all files in some directories. The files it seems to fail on are long filenames and deeply nested directories.
Does anyone know of a script that doesn't mind long filenames and takes large paths in its stride?
I have come across a XCACLS.vbs script from Microsoft, but it works differently and I'm not sure if it works with these large filenames also.
