Permissions on local SIMS folder for updates
When I rebuilt the network in the summer, I installed SIMS using a script from our LEA, who informed me there was a very easy way to set permissions on the local SIMs folders (on the C Drives) so that updates to SIMs would work.
Since then, they have failed to give me an easy way to set these permissions in bulk.
So my question is - I have SIMs installed. I currently have no access rights for staff on the local folder - and staff are not, and cannot be local admins.
What do I need to do to get them to be able to install the SIMs Autumn update without me having to go to every PC and set local rights on the folder(s) (these are Windows 7 64x installs - there is a folder in both program files folders, any ideas which I need to set permissions on?) - they are all part of a STAFF security group. We are running Server 2008 R2

Can't you just use group policy to deploy it?
Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Security Settings, File System
Add folder (whatever it is), set the correct permissions to group "staff" then go go bobs your uncle? Unless I'm missing something

If you are not using SOLUS and your staff are not local admins you can set the correct permissions by running the file simsperm.bat which you should find in the sims\setups folder on the server.
As I recall (not done it for a long time) you need to pass it a parameter which is the name of the domain security group you want the permissions to apply to - so if all your teachers etc are in a group,
or can be put in a group (we have one called SIMS Users) its just a matter of running the file on the workstation.

just look at the batch file and see what it does, then you can replicate, info in this previous thread might help, just change the locations where appropriate to match the x64 setup What's this?!
