applying client permissions on folders using group policy

By Camittech. ·
I have 100 student pc's that i would like to give the students "write" rights to one specific folder on each of the 100 pc's. for example

c:\work\benchmark

does anyone know a way to do this on a windows server 2003 using group policy?

Thanks!!

You can use the cacls/icacls (depending on the version of Windows) to change permissions. icacls can add and remove permissions. I'd put this in a startup script of some sort.

Also,

If you are indeed dropping it on the C: drive there is a few problems. I'd put that on a separate partition. If you give students the ability to write to a directory on the system drive they can drop loads of data on it. All a malicious user needs to do is copy a ton of data to this folder to fill the drive and then the OS can't function properly (write to page file etc) and now you're lab is pooched.
