Is there a way with kaseya to have an agent procedure add a domain user with full control to a particular folder on the machine? I see where you can script Kaseya to create a new domain user, but I am not seeing a way to put add the user to a folder with full permissions. Has anyone got this to work? Or even tried it?
You can set folder-level permissions via command line using the cacls, icacls, or subincacl utilities (depending on which version of Windows you're running).
cacls: technet.microsoft.com/.../bb490872.aspx, technet.microsoft.com/.../2009.07.geekofalltrades.aspx
Once you figure out the appropriate command line string/arguments to set the permissions on the folder(s) you want to edit, you can use the executeShellCommand step in Agent Procedures to automate the process.
Thank you Brande for that. I read those pages and created a command line to add my user. This is what I am doing. Keep in mind, I am doing this locally on the machine to test then I will be creating a procedure to do it across the network.
icacls "Directory" /grant:r "lane.svt":(OI)(CI)F
When I run this it gives me the following error
Lane.svt: No mapping between account names and security IDs was done.
Successfully processed 0 files; Failed processing 1 files
Is there something obvious that I am missing?
Thank you so much Brande. I found my mistake. The user was a domain user and I wasn't typing in the user correctly. Here is the cmd line that worked
icacls "Directory" /grant:r "SVT.local\lane":(OI)(CI)F
Thank you again!
very valuable, thanks all.
