Hi Chuck, > You mentioned "use GUI" to change object ownership. What do > you mean here ? 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 > Resource Kit Supplement, correct ? And that is something you buy ? 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: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=9d467a69-57ff-4 ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&displaylang=en 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: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/scrip tcenter/default.asp There you'll find dozens of useful scripts to help you make short work of administrative tasks.
