Question:

Is there a way to make ExtremeZ-IP ignore Macintosh requests to change folder permissions? I’d like to stop all Macintosh users from changing permissions.

Answer:

Yes.

You can simply turn on the “Ignore Macintosh Change Permission Requests” option in the ExtremeZ-IP Administrator program. Enabling this means that only inherited Windows permissions will be used.


Note:

  • By default the Macintosh sets new folders that it creates to allow only the user who created the folder to have access. Enabling the “Ignore Macintosh Change Permission Requests” will prevent this from occuring.
  • Macintosh users, if they are the AFP “owner,” will still be able to access the “change permissions” dialog boxes in the Finder, but their changes will not be applied to the folders on disk.
