mass setting owner on home directories
After having moved all our home drives onto a new server I now need to set the owners, as we use quotas. NTFS permissions have been preserved it's just the owner.
I have found the following code to run in a batch file:
for /d %%i in (*) do subinacl /errorlog=subinacl.err /subdirectories %%i\*.* /setowner=DOMAIN\%%i
Home directories have the same name as the username
However it is not actually setting anything - subinacl shows 0 for processed and no errors :/
Am I missing something? I've also tried setowner without the domain just in case.

I think I am not having much luck with this thing.. I got the script running fine, I had to click okay several times per home area.. im guessing down to windows security
All it does is set the domain admin and nothing more - folders are named as usernames as well.

I'm gonna ask the obvious question...
Did you change the bit that says "BAINS" into whatever your domain is called ?

can you not just change the path in ad on bulk and then it should give every1 the correct permissions anyway. I have a script on the machine at work if you pm tomorrow i will send it across
