It doesn't have to be that hard.

A domain admin can mount any drive on the network.

subinacle.exe may be used to set permissions from the command line.

It is available at


net use z: /delete

net use z: \\some_desktop\c$

subinacl /file "Z:\ORACLE" /grant=everyone=r

Or something like that.

Pointy-clicky-gui stuff is for the birds.  ;)
