I have to express something and I'd like to use stuff noun. The problem is a proper use do verb when doing is related to something.

My phrase is Some privilege stuff should be done to it. I use it for my tutorial about server configuration. Maybe done with it?

The phrase should mean that some work must be done to make a certain directory on the disk accessible for some users or not.
