Windows 7: Reliability Monitor problem - mostly solved

Reliability Monitor problem - mostly solved

I need some help.

Due to some personal carelessness, I damaged my C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\RAC folder. It was necessary for me to recreate the PublishedData and StateData directories.

Unfortunately, after that, Reliability Monitor would not show data. I tracked the problem down to a permission problem with the newly created folders. RAC Task runs as LOCAL SERVICE. Adding permissions (OI)(CI) F for LOCAL SERVICE to the RAC folder allows the RAC Task to populate its files to the directories. Before, it was running without writing data.

Then, to make the graph work, I'm currently having to set (OI)(CI) F for BUILTIN/Users, or the Reliability Monitor reporting does not work properly, even in an Administrator account (and BUILTIN/Administrators had full access inherited the whole time). The graph appears, but it is empty. The only way I've been able to get the graph to populate is by giving BUILTIN/Users full access.

My question is, can someone whose install of Windows 7 x64 isn't hosed please tell me what the permissions are supposed to be on the RAC folder, and its subfolders and objects? I'd like to set it back to the way it was installed, but I don't have access to a proper install of Windows 7.

For now, the jury rigged folder permissions are doing the trick, but I'd like to get it back to a clean state.

Here are the permissions I currently have on my RAC folder:

Code:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft>cacls RAC
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\RAC NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE:(OI)(CI)F
                             BUILTIN\Users:(OI)(CI)F
                             NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)(ID)F
                             BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)(ID)F
                             BUILTIN\Users:(OI)(CI)(ID)R
                             Everyone:(OI)(CI)(ID)R
What is it supposed to be?

Sorry to be so late in giving thanks. I've got the thing up and running with as close to those ACL settings as I could get.

Thank you.
