This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Actual DOS or some sort of command prompt/script? What operating system exactly? – Tevo D Nov 10 '11 at 14:31

Looks like there is no such command specifically for this but you can use icacls command this way to achive the same

icacls \\Server_name\E$\test /grant:r "DOMAIN\%user%$":(OI)(CI)F

Hope this helps others
