Hey Folks,
here is an example to easy set ACLs on a Windows fileserver by importing path an permissions from a CSV file:

$Permissions = Import-Csv e:\permissions.csv -delimiter '|'
ForEach ($line in $Permissions)
{
 $acl = Get-Acl $line.Path
 $acl.SetAccessRuleProtection($True, $False)
 $rule = New-Object System.Security.AccessControl.
FileSystemAccessRule($line.Group,"Modify","ContainerInherit, ObjectInherit",
 "None", "Allow")
#-------------------------------------------------------------
# The above line can be edited like the reference at the end.
#-------------------------------------------------------------
 $acl.AddAccessRule($rule)
 Set-Acl $line.Path $acl
 }

The CSV has to look like this:

Path|Group
e:\folder1\subfolder1|domain\group1
e:\folder1|subfolder2|domain\group2
e:\folder2|subfolder1|domain\group3
e:\folder2|subfolder2|domain\group4

Reference Table:

Subfolders and Files only InheritanceFlags.ContainerInherit, InheritanceFlags.ObjectInherit, PropagationFlags.InheritOnly
This Folder, Subfolders and Files    InheritanceFlags.ContainerInherit, InheritanceFlags.ObjectInherit, PropagationFlags.None
This Folder, Subfolders and Files InheritanceFlags.ContainerInherit, InheritanceFlags.ObjectInherit, PropagationFlags.NoPropagateInherit
This folder and subfolders InheritanceFlags.ContainerInherit, PropagationFlags.None
Subfolders only InheritanceFlags.ContainerInherit, PropagationFlags.InheritOnly
This folder and files InheritanceFlags.ObjectInherit, PropagationFlags.None
This folder and files InheritanceFlags.ObjectInherit, PropagationFlags.NoPropagateInherit
