Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Get-CertificationAuthority "ca01.company.com" | Get-CASecurityDescriptor | Remove-CAAccessControlEntry -User "jsmith","JohnWayne" | Set-CASecurityDescriptor -RestartCA

This example retrieves current access control list from CA server installed on "ca01.company.com", removes all permissions explicitly granted to John Smith and John Wayne and writes modified ACL to CA configuration. After command completion CA services will be restarted to immediately apply changes.

Example 2

PS C:\> $ACE = New-Object PKI.Security.AccessControl.CertificationAuthorityAccessRule ([Security.Principal.NTAccount]"jsmith"), "ManageCA", "Allow")
PS C:\> Get-CertificationAuthority "ca01.company.com" | Get-CASecurityDescriptor | Remove-CAAccessControlEntry -User "jsmith" | Add-CAAccessControlEntry -AccessControlEntry $ACE | Set-CASecurityDescriptor -RestartCA

This example demonstrates techniques to change permissions explicitly granted to a user. In a given example, first line creates new access control entry for John Smith. Second line retrieves access control list from CA server, removes all permissions granted to John Smith and adds new access control entry.
