If I have a folder inside a SVS layer that needs to have security set up differently from the rest of the program how would I do that?
For example I have an SVS Layer of PC Transplant 6.5 but would like to change the security of the C:\Program Files\altiris\PCT which is visible only when that layer is active. How do I do this?
Follow these steps to properly ACL the virtual directory: This example is specific for the PCT folder mentioned above and adds a user to the permissions.
1- Import your layer into the SVS Admin console. Note that the path C:\Program Files\Altiris\PCT is actually stored in C:\fslrdr\1\[_B_]PROGRAMFILES[_E_]\Altiris\PCT.
2- Using explorer, browse to the real path for the directory (C:\fslrdr\1\[_B_]PROGRAMFILES[_E_]\Altiris\PCT)
3- Edit its permissions and add a new ACE (Jimmy, Full Control in my test).
4- Activate the layer.
5- View the permissions on C:\Program Files\Altiris\PCT (It includes Jimmy with Full Control).
