Sorry, here's a little more information on the subject:
I have the folders structured based on department. Directors have modify rights to everything within the root department folders, thats no big deal. However, subordinates only have access to specific folders within the root. So Admins don't have acess to higher security folders. This becomes a hassle as I need to apply (RX,W) permissions for every specific folder.
I suppose putting it all in a batch script would work fine, but that still doesn't provide me with a means of shortening the commands. Ideally, I need to be able to do the following (if possible):
icacls "F:\SHARE\Purchasing\Requests" && "F:\SHARES\Purchasing\Finalized" && "F:\SHARES\Purchasing\Filled" /grant: r "PurchasingAdmin":(RX,W)
What you said about using FOR sounds ideal. So if I wanted to assign RX,W permissions for a group to multiple folders, I could use FOR to run the icacls command on a list of them, correct? Can you give an example of how the syntax would work?
