    Description

      Puppet's current implementation of mapping POSIX modes to Windows ACLs has some limitations.

      • Puppet can only assign permissions to owner and group, but it's common practice on Windows systems to set full control to Administrators, LocalSystem, and Users, which is more than can be represented in our model, without creating a local group.
      • Puppet doesn't support deny access control entries

      Puppet should support setting multiple access control entries, deny/allow aces, and inheritance. See <http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727008.aspx> for common permissions.

      Another option would be to express permissions in terms of SDDL, but that is likely overkill.
