If you are in a migration project or trying to cleanup your existing file system, you may want to apply new or reset existing permissions on home directories. Most fileservers have a structure similar to:

  • D:Usersuser1
  • D:Usersuser2
  • D:Usersuserx
  • Users is shared as Users$

UMRA can bulk reset permissions on these folders in a simple operation:

  • Load table containing all level 0 subfolders of D:Users
  • Loop through each folder
  • On every folder, get the SID of the corresponding AD user account
  • Apply new permissions for the folder
