I'm quite new to powershell and trying to use the Get-ACL and set-acl cmdlets to change a folder permission on a new folder.
i have set a $paste for the username so for example would be jack.smith
i am trying to create the folder with
FileSystemRights : DeleteSubdirectoriesAndFiles, Modify, Synchronize
AccessControlType : Allow
IdentityReference : USERNAME
IsInherited : False
InheritanceFlags : ContainerInherit, ObjectInherit
PropagationFlags : None
but i get an error when trying to create a permissions object like below:
PS C:\Users\xxxxx> $Perms = New-Object system.security.accesscontrol.
New-Object : Cannot find an overload for "FileSystemAccessRule" and the argumen
t count: "6".
At line:1 char:20
+ $Perms = New-Object < <<< system.security.accesscontrol.filesystemaccessrule
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:) [New-Object], MethodExcept
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : ConstructorInvokedThrowException,Microsoft.Power
any help would be great!
The problem you are having is some of the parameters to the FileSystemAccessRule constructor are a collection and you don't have them together (e.g., 'ContainerInherit','ObjectInherit' vs. 'ContainerInherit, ObjectInherit')
