Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

You could do it manually through the GUI or using Power shell. It should always be done from the server that is hosting the volume or folders you want to share. Permissions should be granted based on security groups rather than individual users.

We programmatically identified every unique folder and all the groups and permissions that were applied to them. Then we turned off inheritance and directly applied any groups that were on their ACL’s.

Then, we added new groups (Data Privilege groups) with the same masks as the original groups and added all the users from the corresponding old groups. Later we removed the old groups from the ACL. This left with us with only DP groups on each managed folder.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
