ChangeSecurityPermissionsEx method of the CIM_LogicalFile class

The ChangeSecurityPermissionsEx method changes the security permissions for the logical file specified in the object path (this method is an extended version of the ChangeSecurityPermissions method). 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.

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 ChangeSecurityPermissionsEx(
  [in]  Win32_SecurityDescriptor SecurityDescriptor,
  [in]  uint32 Option,
  [out] string StopFileName,
  [in]  string StartFileName,
  [in]  boolean Recursive
);

Parameters

SecurityDescriptor [in]

Specifies the security information.

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

Value used to set the bitMeaning
CHANGE_OWNER_SECURITY_INFORMATION
1

Change the owner of the logical file.

CHANGE_GROUP_SECURITY_INFORMATION
2

Change the group of the logical file.

CHANGE_DACL_SECURITY_INFORMATION
4

Change the ACL of the logical file.

CHANGE_SACL_SECURITY_INFORMATION
8

Change the system ACL of the logical file.

 

StopFileName [out]

String that represents the name of the file (or directory) where the method failed. This parameter has a value of null if the method succeeds.

StartFileName [in]

String that represents the child file (or directory) to use as a starting point for this method. Typically, the StartFileName parameter is the StopFileName parameter specifying the file (or directory) at which an error occurred from the previous method call. If the parameter value is null, the operation is performed on the file or directory specified in the ExecMethod call.

Recursive [in]

If TRUE, the security permissions are applied recursively to files and directories within the directory specified by the CIM_LogicalFile instance. For file instances, this parameter is ignored.
