Using GPO's can you set the permissons on a local folder? Our workstations are all XP and our servers are all 2003.

I know I can write a VBScript to do this and then launch that in GPO's but I was wondering if you can do this in native Group Policy. I see some folder settings but nothing that seems to allow the setting of PERMS.

Actually you Can do this using native GPO's!! I set it up and it works like a charm !!

Computers\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\File System

Once you get to File System "right click" File System and pick "Add File". Then, you will see a small Explorer looking window. Drill down to the "Folder" you want to set PERMS on. Once you pick your Folder and click OK a Security applet pops up and you can then set the security for that folder.

They hid this well :-) Try it.... it is pretty slick.
