Setting folder permission on folders on Azure file storage through Powershell

I’ve mapped an Azure FileShare as a network drive and want to setup folder restrictions using PowerShell however I keep getting the error

I’m attempting to Disable inheritence in one step and the then set the required restrictions in second step. I get the error on the first step. How can this be overcome?

Set-Acl : Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation.
At line:66 char:21

  •               Set-Acl -Path $L4_foldername -AclObject $acl
  •               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Welcome to the forum. :wave:t4:

The error message is pretty obvious …

The account you are using does not have sufficient rights. To change permissions you have to have “Full Control”.
