noteNote:
Incorrectly modifying the attributes of Active Directory® directory service objects by using ADSI Edit (AdsiEdit.msc), DSACLS (Dsacls.exe), the LDP tool (Ldp.exe), or any other Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) version 3 clients can cause serious problems. These problems may require reinstallation of Microsoft® Windows Server, Microsoft Exchange Server, or both. Problems that occur if ActiveDirectory object attributes are modified incorrectly may not be solved. Modify these attributes at your own risk.

The format for DSACLS is the following:

dsacls "<ContainerPath>" /I:S /G "<Domain>\<Alias>:RPWP;<Attribute>;<ClassObject>" 

Where:

  • <ContainerPath> is the distinguished name of the object (for example, domain, organizational unit);

  • <Domain>\<Alias> is the account\group being granted access; where <Attribute> is the attribute to which access is being granted;

  • <ClassObject> is the class object (user, group, contact, and so on) to which the attribute is associated.

The /I:S switch signals DSACLS to apply the permissions to sub-objects contained within the container path. The /G switch signals DSACLS to grant the necessary permissions (as opposed to deny or remove the permissions).

The RP argument signals DSACLS to grant the Read access for the property in question. The WP argument signals DSACLS to grant Write access for the property in question.

noteNote:
The syntax for DSACLS is one command line, which contains no line breaks.
