Hello guys,

I am working on something at work. We actually have a server whereby all the profiles of users working on citrix are stored. there is a routine work that we do to take ownership on a profile, rename the profile and copy the files of the old profile to the new one. WHen i say profile it is basically a folder with sub folders and files.

I wrote a little automation script on notepad ++ to do that but the thing is that there is no inheritance on the profiles so it is taking ownership only on the main folder and not on subfolders.

Kindly help

Find below what i wrote


set /p support=Enter your IT support username:%=%
set /p username=Enter The username:%=%

echo **************************************************
