Grant-DfsnAccess

Grants permissions to users and groups to access a DFS namespace folder.

Syntax

Parameter Set: GrantNamespaceAccessRights1
Grant-DfsnAccess [-Path] <String> [-AccountName] <String[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Grant-DfsnAccess cmdlet grants permissions to users and groups for a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace folder. This cmdlet grants permissions to access a folder and to enumerate its contents. You can use the Get-DfsnAccess cmdlet to see the current permissions, and you can use the Revoke-DfsnAccess cmdlet to revoke permissions.

For a DFS namespace which has Access-based enumeration enabled, users can see only the folders that they can access.

For more information about DFS namespaces, see Overview of DFS Namespaces (http://technet.microsoft.com/library/cc730736) on TechNet.
