Hi all,

xcacls.vbs doesn´t show me if the inheritance-flag is set on a folder or
not. The output is always the same ("This Folder, Subfolders and Files"), no
matter if the flag is set or not.
Any Ideas how to get the right settings dumped?

Regards, Oliver

I don't know how to get xcacls.vbs to work the way you want but you might
want to try fileacl also as shown in the links below. --- Steve

While some other ways, like use of WMI scripting directly,
the fileacl third-party control/script Steve mentioned, etc.
will show the raw flags, it is still the case that xcacls.vbs
will show inheritance correctly, not just always showing
"This folder, subfolders and files" as you indicate.

If you are really seeing that behavior I would suggest that
you get a fresh download of xcacls.vbs as something has
perhaps modified yours.

I used the actual version of xcacls.vbs (5.2) and it behaves just like i
mentioned before.
Anyway, the Tool Fileacl was exactly what i was looking for. Dumping
permissions, modifying and then re-applying them.
It works really great.
