Setting file ownership with Win32::Permsby Biff (Novice)
|on Mar 16, 2006 at 21:34 UTC||Need Help??|
Biff has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Pray tell Kind Monks,
I've been wrestling with Win32::Perms attempting to set the owner of files and directories and have found what appears to me to be a bug but wanted to seek your wisdom first.
Apparently, Win32::Perms has problems with local users. I attempted the code:
When I run this I get the error:
No mapping between account names and security IDs was done.
If I uncomment the $owner assignment that uses a domain account and comment out the $owner assignment that uses the local host account then no errors and the script works.
I've logged into the machine as the local user and was able to create files as that user.
I'm at a loss to what is wrong except that there is a bug in Win32::Perms.
