[The Security Descriptor property is no longer available for use as of Windows Server 2012.]
This property is not supported.
Windows Server 2003:
|Data type||Byte array|
|Access||Read/write (see Remarks)|
|Maximum||See Maximum String Size|
Although the property value is read/write, the underlying security descriptor can be changed only through the Access Control or Network Management APIs. To change the value of the Security Descriptor property.
- Retrieve the value of the property.
- Assign the value to a SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR structure.
- Pass the value to any Access Control or Network Management API function that will change the discretionary access control list (DACL) of the descriptor, such as SetSecurityDescriptorDacl or NetShareSetInfo.
- Once the value has been modified, update the Security Descriptor property.
- Take the File Share resource offline and bring it back online to activate the new security settings.
Note When you use Cluster Administrator to create a new File Share resource, permissions for the "Everyone" group for that file share are set to read-only by default. However, if you use cluster.exe or the Cluster API to create the File Share resource, permissions for the "Everyone" group for that file share are set to full control by default. You can modify this property as previously described to change the default permissions.
