Script to change folder permissions
I currently have our current domain and a new domain running with a new way trust!
What I want to do is add the new domain permissions on to the folder.
For example a shared area might have 3 permissions on it currently
I want the script to copy the username/group and put our new domain credentials on
Is there a script I could use to do this or otherwise it will be alot of work going through each folder and adding the new permission

You could try this. I would try it on dumy folders first before you do it on the live folders just incase! I didnt do this once and regreted it.
This line adds the username of the folder into the permissions
for /D %%i in (*) do (
calcs %%i /T /P /G STAMFORD\S-Staff:f
cacls %%i /T /E /G STAMFORD\JLBloggs:f
cacls %%i /T /E /G STAMFORD\MLBloggs:f
cacls %%i /T /E /G mcc\%%i:f
So if the folder is called MLBloggs and the logonname is MLBloggs then it will give it permissions over it.
Hope this helps.
