ChangeSecurityPermissions method of the CIM_DataFile class

The ChangeSecurityPermissions method changes the security permissions for the logical data file specified in the object path. If the logical file is a directory, then this method will act recursively, changing the security permissions for all of the files and sub-directories that the directory contains. This method is inherited from CIM_LogicalFile.

Important  The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) CIM (Common Information Model) classes are the parent classes upon which WMI classes are built. WMI currently supports only the CIM 2.x version schemas.

This topic uses Managed Object Format (MOF) syntax. For more information about using this method, see Calling a Method.

Syntax


uint32 ChangeSecurityPermissions(
  [in]  Win32_SecurityDescriptor SecurityDescriptor,
  [in]  uint32 Option
);

Parameters

SecurityDescriptor [in]

Specifies the security information.

Note  A NULL access control list (ACL) in the SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR structure grants unlimited access. For information about the implications of unlimited access, see Creating a Security Descriptor for a New Object.

Option [in]

Security privilege to modify. For example, to change the owner and DACL security, use:

Option = 1 + 4

or

Option = CHANGE_OWNER_SECURITY_INFORMATION | CHANGE_DACL_SECURITY_INFORMATION
