Hi Chuck,

Changing object ownership can be accomplished through the security
properties dialog box:

-open Windows Explorer
-select object(s)
-click right mouse button
-select "Properties"
-click "Security"
-click "Advanced"
-click "Owner"

>From this dialog you can change the ownership of the selected file
object(s). (However, I'm not sure if changing object ownership is really
what you want -- it was just something that Booth brought up.)

> And on "subinacl.exe" - that is the Windows 2000 Server

That's correct. Although I highly recommend the purchase of the full
resource kit, you can actually get a free version of this utility from
the following location:


As you'll see, the toolkit available from that link is for WServer 2003,
so I'd be careful about using it with W2K. The version of subinacl
included in the kit will work with 2000, but I can't vouch for any of
the others.

Here is another link which you'll eventually find to be very useful:


There you'll find dozens of useful scripts to help you make short work
of administrative tasks.
