Resetting privileges for local or domain users and groups

You can reset privileges for local or domain users and groups. This can be useful when you have made modifications to privileges for a local or domain user or group and those modifications are no longer wanted or needed.

About this task

Resetting privileges for a local or domain user or group removes any privilege entries for that object.

Procedure

  1. Reset the privileges on a local or domain user or group: vserver cifs users-and-groups privilege reset-privilege -vserver vserver_name -user-or-group-name name
  2. Verify that the privileges are reset on the object: vserver cifs users-and-groups privilege show -vserver vserver_name -user-or-group-name name

Examples

The following example resets the privileges on the user CIFS_SERVER\sue on storage virtual machine (SVM, formerly known as Vserver) vs1. By default, normal users do not have privileges associated with their accounts:

cluster1::> vserver cifs users-and-groups privilege show
Vserver   User or Group Name    Privileges
--------- --------------------- ---------------
vs1       CIFS_SERVER\sue       SeTcbPrivilege
                                SeTakeOwnershipPrivilege

cluster1::> vserver cifs users-and-groups privilege reset-privilege -vserver vs1 -user-or-group-name CIFS_SERVER\sue

cluster1::> vserver cifs users-and-groups privilege show
This table is currently empty.

The following example resets the privileges for the group BUILTIN\Administrators, effectively removing the privilege entry:

cluster1::> vserver cifs users-and-groups privilege show
Vserver   User or Group Name       Privileges
--------- ------------------------ -------------------
vs1       BUILTIN\Administrators   SeRestorePrivilege
                                   SeSecurityPrivilege
                                   SeTakeOwnershipPrivilege

cluster1::> vserver cifs users-and-groups privilege reset-privilege -vserver vs1 -user-or-group-name BUILTIN\Administrators

cluster1::> vserver cifs users-and-groups privilege show
This table is currently empty.
