Hey, Ben here. I’m sitting at home today nursing a poorly baby with a fever so i thought i’d throw this quick article together out on how to use Microsoft ICACLS to set folder/file permissions using AppSense Environment Manager. ICACLS is a neat tool included in Windows 7/Server 2008 OS that allows you to view and modify the access control lists for files and folders on your NTFS file system.
We use ICACLS all of the time in our environment, especially when introducing new users to the system for the first time. We use it to build home drives and setup their personalized user environment PUE..thats neat..PUE..just made that acronym up! 🙂
