Windows Server Core and NTFS/File Share Permissions

Brass Contributor

I have a Windows Server 2019 installed with the GUI and the Windows Admin Center.  I have ten other Windows Server 2019 machines set up with Windows Server Core.  A couple of them will be File Servers.


Now, my particular question is, how can I quickly manage file and folder permissions?


I know how to use Icacls.exe and net share or even Set-ACL in PowerShell, but there's nothing like using the GUI--right click the folder, go to Sharing or Security tab, etc. etc.


Is there a way to do this using the Windows Admin Center remotely?  I cannot find any file manipulation tools in WAC.  Storage yes, but not file permissions.


Does anyone know how, beyond the tools I've mentioned, how to do so?
