vbs scripting to list and add NTFS permissions

Post by ging8990 »

I want to write a script to list the current NTFS permissions on the network share folders and then add new groups (multiple groups) to the network share folders.
But it didn't work, please help!!!


Set sh = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

fldr = "\\servername\myshare"
group = "TA\admin"

rc = sh.Run("%COMSPEC% /c icacls """ & fldr & """ | find /i """ & group _
& """", 0, True)
If rc <> 0 Then sh.Run "icacls """ & fldr & """ /grant " & group & ":F"

ICACLS cannot list share permissions.

net share users | findstr /i "permission"
