icacls command to remove multiple users permissions from a folder at one icacls command in win 2008 R2

    Question

  • hi friends

    in win2008 R2, i want to know is it possible to remove multiple users permissions from security tab of a folder at once ?  ( at one icacls command ? )

    for example in my C: drive, i have a folder called "MyFolder" to which the user1 and person2 and teacher3 have Modify permission.

    i want to remove their permissions from MyFolder at once.  i tried this command but it doesn't work :

    icacls c:\MyFolder /remove:g user1,person2,teacher3      doesn't work.

    any solution please

    thanks in advance

  • Run the command prompt as Administrator, then try it with the domain name:

    icacls c:\MyFolder /remove:g  domain\user1, domain\person2, domain\teacher3 (with commas)

    or

    icacls c:\MyFolder /remove:g  domain\user1 domain\person2 domain\teacher3  (without commas)

    .
