Hi all,

I'm trying to set permissions on the user homefolders with a script, but it
just runs through w/o actually setting them. Can you help?

I have a simple text file with all the user folders called users.txt located
in D:\users. The script cd's to this folder and then runs

for /f %%A in (users.txt) do cacls /T /G domain\%%A:F "domain\domain admins":F
system:F /C

Basically it sets Full Control permissions to the user himself, Domain Admins
and System.

For what it's worth the command runs fine when run manually:
        cacls /T /G domain\username:F "domain\domain admins":F system:F /C

Any hints are greatly appreciated.
