Break Inheritance from parent site programmatically

  Asked By: Gino    Date: May 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 5360

I am creating a web site using custom features and stsadm commands run
from a VBscript.

I create new security groups to be applied to the new site and its
multiple sub sites (stsadm.exe -o creategroup). However, I get an error
when I apply them to the main site because it inherits its permissions
from a parent site. The error says that as long as it inherits from a
parent, the new security groups cannot be applied.

Is there a way to break the inheritance for an entire site
programmatically? I need to do this before creating the new security

Call the BreakRoleInheritance method of the SPWeb object passing it a boolean
for whether you are breaking or establishing inheritance. I'm not sure this is
available in VBscript, but could be accessed from PowerShell.
