I discovered that there is a replacement to cacls called xcacls.vbs which can be downloaded from kb article 825751 which has instructions on how to use it. Not sure why there is a new version, but the output from the vbs script does look a lot nicer than cacls. Hopefully it doesn’t blow up permissions like cacls did for me once.
I’ve had this problem before and I don’t think I had blogged about it, but when you delete a server that has shares that are set up to allow client side caching (offline) use then you run into major problems when clients can’t see it anymore.
This blog post has *all* the details you need to know about the csccmd utility but do the following:-
csccmd.exe /MOVESHARE:\\oldserver\share \\newserver\share
The csccmd.exe file is available from the resource kit and a newer version from pss
Now hopefully when this happens again in the future I’ll be able to find it in the blog. For the first time in a long time I searched for a solution that I know I had come across but for some reason I had not blogged it. Bad brownie points for me this afternoon (but good ones tomorrow if this solution works 🙂
