Migrating Files from Novell to Microsoft is slow

    Hi all,
    Migrating several large volumes from Novell to Microsoft and I've run into
    some issues applying security rights. We have a script that turns the
    volumes_trustee file into a set of icacls.exe commands. Trouble is when
    setting a permissions on a folder that is high up in a directory tree that
    is
    very deep the permissions take a VERY long time to apply.

    This is most obvious when setting permissions on a root level folder such as
    D:\Shared. Adding a single ACE on a root level folder is taking several
    hours
    to complete.

    This is too slow. Are there any solutions to this issue?

    Thanks,
    Jacob
