I am experiencing some DFSR-related issues where I am seeing quite a few 'access denied' errors as well as having my netbackup jobs skip most folders. I have noticed that when we migrated the users to DFSR using GPO we had the default option 'Grant user exclusive rights' is selected by default and this excludes even local or domain admins. Now there is a way to take ownership and then grant the necessary permissions but I want to be able to do this on many folders without affecting the user permissions that are currently applied. I seem to recall that xcopy had a function but am not sure if this works with 2008R2 or 2012 server which are the 2 onsite DFSR servers that I am working with at the moment.
Is anyone aware of the best way to do this? Bear in mind that permissions inheritance is blocked for each user folder.
