The initial security configuration of all disks on a Panel-managed server is performed during Panel installation. Panel applies its own security settings to all existing Windows objects on the server according to the disk and hosting security policies.
Once security has been configured, you have several options to manage security settings for Windows objects. We recommend that you use Panel's security metadata files to set and edit security settings for Windows objects on Panel-managed servers. The changes made in the files can be then applied to Windows objects by running the
HostingSecurity.exe command-line utilities.
You can also modify the security settings for each object individually either through Panel GUI or Windows Explorer directly by going to Security tab in the object's Properties. However, neither of these options is recommended. The main reason is that the changes made in the security settings by using these options may be overwritten by security settings applied by
Reconfigurator.exe command-line utilities.
The following advantages are afforded by using the security metadata files to configure security settings for Windows objects:
