Grant ADgroup to have full permission on a selected OU RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Expert,

    I have a csv file with 2 column (first column Ou path second column ADgroup name).

    How do i insert to the PS below (Grant ADgroup to have full permission on a selected OU)

    $acl = get-acl "ad:OU=CloudDrive,OU=Services,DC=T,DC=com"
    $acl.access #to get access right of the OU
    $Group = Get-ADGroup "OUAdmin_CloudDrive_A"
    $sid = [System.Security.Principal.SecurityIdentifier] $Group.SID
    $identity = [System.Security.Principal.IdentityReference] $SID
    $adRights = [System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectoryRights] "GenericAll"
    $type = [System.Security.AccessControl.AccessControlType] "Allow"
    $inheritanceType = [System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectorySecurityInheritance] "All"
    $ACE = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectoryAccessRule $identity,$adRights,$type,$inheritanceType
    Set-acl -aclobject $acl "ad:OU=CloudDrive,OU=Services,DC=T,DC=com"

    *PS correct me if the script above is incorrect,  i want to grant ADgroup to have full permission on a selected OU.

  • This should be all you need to do.

    $path = 'ad:OU=CloudDrive,OU=Services,DC=T,DC=com'
    $acl = Get-Acl $path
    $group = Get-ADGroup OUAdmin_CloudDrive_A
    $ace = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectoryAccessRule($group.SID,'GenericAll','Allow','All')
    Set-Acl -Path $path -aclobject $acl

  • Hi Jrv,

    There is some errors on your script, by the way can u tune the script that can import OU and ADgroup from csr file.

    argument count: "4".

  • Not my script.  It is your script I just removed all of the unnecessary lines.

    This is likely what you wanted:

    $path = 'ad:OU=CloudDrive,OU=Services,DC=T,DC=com'
    $group = Get-ADGroup OUAdmin_CloudDrive_A
    $ace = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectoryAccessRule($group.SID,'GenericAll','Allow')
    $acl = Get-Acl $path
    Set-Acl -Path $path -aclobject $acl

  • Child objects only?  Child and parent?  All containers and all children?
