Add and Remove NTFS permissions - WFA Commands examples


Hi guys.


I created these WFA commands to add permission to given UNC path, needed permission and domain user/group and another one to remove NTFS permission (usually Everyone-FullControl is auto and we want to remove it)

It's pretty straight forward.

The commands recieve info as inputs.


Please be advised that the user running WFA service needs to have permission and domainuser ID on the netapp that the shares are being modified on.

If this command is being used for changing permissions on windows direcotries, not on netapp shares, it will still work fine with the local-system service account.


I am now working on adapting these commands to run with vserver security file-directory command.






Do you have a dar file that works with WFA 4.1?


Do you have the DAR file of this? How to I import it to the WFA? thanks
