Reset system file/folder permissions?

Hello,

We ran into an issue where a vendor clobbered some system permissions that are now preventing us from adding printers or users. We dont know everything that was changed. How can we go about resetting the OS system files/folders permssions back to the defaults they should be?

Would "swverify -F \*" do this?

Thanks.

Using -F would fix most system directories/files.
