Grant-DfsnAccess – Explicit Permissions Issue

Hello

Im currently configuring a script to automate the creation of AD Groups, Folders used for DFS and modifying the permissions of the DFS Folder.

I’ve been using the ‘Grant-DfsnAccess’ cmdlet which is configuring the permissions up fine, but when coming to check the permissions within DFS Management, the ‘Use inherited permissions from the local file system’ is ticked instead of ‘Set Explicit view permissions on the DFS Folder’

I’ve looked into this and i’ve found the following MS article:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/2938148/windows-powershell-cmdlet-grant-dfsnaccess-does-not-change-inherit

Does anyone know if this has been patched? Or should i just use ‘Method 2’ suggested by MS.

Thanks
