Trouble modifying Folder rights

I am working on a script to create new users in our domain.  One of the steps 
is to create a home directory.  What I want to accomplish is create the 
folder. Turn off inheritance from the parent object, and add the the 
individual rules that are necessary.

So far I can create the folder and get the current acl but it does not seem 
to be getting modified.  here is my code so far.

New-Item "\\***********\test2" -type directory

$strFolder = "\\***********\test2"
$ACL = Get-Acl $strFolder
$identity = "Domain\admjsampson"
$rights = "modify"
#$Inheritance = @("ObjectInherit", "ContainerInherit")
$Inheritance = "ContainerInherit"
$Propagation = "None"
$Type = "Allow"
$Rule = New-Object$identity,$rights, 
$inheritance, $propagation, $type)

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Jacob,

You're on the right lines with this, the step you've missed is applying 
the new ACL. All of the changes you've done so far effect the ACL you've 
loaded into memory.


Set-ACL $strFolder -AclObject $ACL

One additional right you might want to add is Synchronize:

$rights = "modify", "Synchronize"

That'll change this from a "Special" permission to the Modify tick box 
in the main / basic permissions page.

Is there a way to display Public Folders in the All Mail Folders view? Outlook2003
We are getting ready to deploy Outlook 2003 to about 10,000 users. The powers that be do not want the users to have to click on the folder icon in order to see Public Folders (PF). They want them to be in their face when the software is first deployed. A new installation shows, on the left side of the window, Favorite Folders, All Mail Folders (which is the user's mailbox and folders that are on the Exchange server), large icons for Mail, Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks, small icons for Notes, Folder View, and Shortcuts. Then there's the little double arrow to configure all of the icons...

Folder Permissions & 2007
We have a share drive that contains multiple folders with individual spreadsheets that each user maintains. We have set up these folders with protection so users can’t delete the spreadsheets, copy others or modify the contents, only save/edit what already exists. A group was created with the users as members, permissions were granted to “Allow” all permissions except “Delete Subfolders & File” and “Delete”, and these are marked as “Deny”. Since there are multiple folders, they all inherit permissions from the main folder. In Excel 2003, the users are able to save as neede...

Inbound emails get stuck in the Queue (folder)
hello i was wondering if anyone had encountered this problem. when we rebooted our server, the inbox seemed to fill up with 60,000 emails dating back months. upon investigation, it was found that these messages were "stuck" in the queue folder, and the reboot forced them out in to the inbox. i have found newsgroup entries that say about outbound messages being stuck but none about inbound messages. after a few more reboots, (to solve other problems!!), the queue does not seem to be growing anymore. it seems to have fixed itself! but does anyone have any ideas why this happened...

Public Folder w/subfolders.. I can't see'em

Import Data: on insert, shift data down and not right
Hi, I'm importing data from an external source (notes database). The data is being put in between different rows which have existing data. The problem I'm stuck with is that on the insert of the data, I would like an existing data to moved downwards but instead it's being moved to the right. I.e. the colums are shifting right whereas I would like the rows to be moved down. Can anyone please help with this. Thanks Lena It's not clear how you're doing this "insert" of data.

How are folders organized in Outlook?
Hello, how are folders organized in Outlook? Is there a MainFolder which keeps all the other folders and so on? Or are the basically different kind of folders? For mail, contacts? (I don't think so but Im not sure) Is there already something implemented which shows me a list of all folders, maybe similar to the folder in the windows explorer itself. And how does outlook identify the folders? Is there an internal unique value?

Twin Personal Folders

Modifying GetRootItem()
Hello, Is there a way to modify GetRootItem() function so it treats a particular directory as root? So far GetRootItem() always goes to "/" and if I want users to go to a different directory say, a/b/c, it first finds and expands a, then same for b and finally does c. This is quite ineffieicent and I think its complexity is like O(something exponential). So, is there a way to modify GetRootItem() so it works O(1) on a specific directory? Thank you. Victor.

Sign in trouble

Trouble downloading .ofx files from BofA
