command line for taking ownership and adding full control of directory

An important part of non-standard locations with complicated products is appropriate control of the installation and temorary file directories. There are several ways to quickly validate file and folder permissions, especially when multiple users are involved in setting up installation or patching files on multiple environments. This works for making the service account an owner with full control:

TAKEOWN /s /f "C:\Temp" /r /d y
TAKEOWN /s /f "C:\Temp" /r /d y
TAKEOWN /s /f "C:\Temp" /r /d y
TAKEOWN /s /f "C:\Temp" /r /d y
TAKEOWN /s /f "C:\Temp" /r /d y
TAKEOWN /s /f "C:\Temp" /r /d y
TAKEOWN /s /f "C:\Temp" /r /d y
ICACLS \\\c$\Temp /grant domain.com\serviceaccountname:(OI)(CI)F
ICACLS \\\c$\Temp /grant domain.com\serviceaccountname:(OI)(CI)F
ICACLS \\\c$\Temp /grant domain.com\serviceaccountname:(OI)(CI)F

steps

Prerequisite: Local or Domain Administrator access
