Virtualization Question

Applying permissions in Appv5

08/06/2014 1443 views
We have been asked to set permissions to a folder under AppVRootPackage folder via setACL. Now i have an understanding this can be done via dynamicdeploymentconfig xml file under the machine scripts section. however, what i fails to understand is. what should i mention in the path and arguments section , so that during publishing setacl.exe sets permissions to folders under AppVRootPackage folder. Following is a snippet of our code

        <Arguments>-on "[{AppVPackageRoot}]" -ot file -actn ace -ace "n:Everyone;p:Full"</Arguments>


But for some reason the above logic isnt working. Any of you who can help me figure out what am i missing in code??

  • what version of app-v v5 are you using. SP2 hotix 4 or above, you should not have this problem. In the advanced option at the end of the sequencing enable users to write to the files, job done.
