Script to change permissions on redirected folders in 2008SBS

I saw a mention of a script to change permissions on redirected folders in 2008SBS.  Can anyone tell me if such a script exists, and if so, where I can get it?  Thanks!

I have approximately 45 users in AD.  When I run the script, it appears to go through each user and change the rights (at least that's what it looks like to me - if I'm mistaken, please tell me!)  Some of the user rights appear to change, while others throw this error.  They are all set up the same way, so I don't understand why I'm getting the failure.


I suppose I could log in as each user on their machine, and manually migrate the files... but automating it seems so much smarter.

If you follow the kit you must logon to every workstation and have the group policy move files from old server to new server, there is no other way doing this. I would like to reach out to you and help to get this fixed so send me an email (you have the email address from the invoice)

Yes, like I said, it works for some users, but fails for others.  That is what I can't figure out!

Why do you need to add other users? It is really only meant for Domain Admins. I do not understand what you are trying to do.

Once again, thanks for your help.  I'm not sure you can help me with this one, though...  When I execute the script, some of the permissions are changed correctly, while others throw an error, as follows:  

"<Account Domain not found><ID>F

NT Authority\System:<ID>F"

Do you have any idea what may be going on, and how I can fix it?


Can this be run against a specific user, instead of the whole directory?  Thanks!

Did you change the script to the Domain Account you want to add to the folder?

I'm sorry - didn't look closely enough.  Of course, it was at the bottom of your initial response...


Thank you, and Merry Christmas!

Thank you Robert! Let me know how things go?

Thanks for your very fast response!  However, I don't see the FixPermissions script in the download.  Can you help me find that?  Thanks again!
