Locked

Mac Volume on an NT Server!

By Whatme? ·
I have placed a Mac volume on one of my NT4 Servers as a service. My macs can see the server in Chooser and pick the volume. They can open it but the volume is locked.(See files but can't put files or save back to it.)
I have logged in as administrator and given share rights to adms,everyone, domain users and network users.
Any ideas how I can unlock this folder

Thanks
Merv

Here are some clues that can lead you to the right direction...

Using the MacFile menu in File Manager (Winfile.exe)...click Permissions.
Check the following boxes for the Everyone group:

X See Folders
X See Files
X Make Changes

The MASTER Volume MUST have these settings. And FOLDER within this volume can have mix-match... IE: ONLY Make Changes selected. Make sure that you have all selected on the master volume. Look at the MAC's and see if there is a BELT around it? That meansit's locked... NO BELT...or no service.

A little note on MAC volumes...
MAC Volume CREATION ERRORS..
This CAN happen...and it happens...

SFM creates an in-memory index for each Macintosh volume to optimize folder and file access for Macintosh clients. Along with the appropriate disk structures, the index is updated for certain events, such as creation or deletion of folders and files, and for all permission changes. The index, which is stored on disk in the volume header, is read when SFM is started and written right after startup and again when SFM is shutdown. Attribute changes, such as folder permissions made by processes outside of SFM, to Macintosh volumes may not be correctly reflected until SFM is stopped and restarted.Latez-

It sheds some light on what I am doing wrong.

If the only volume you can mount is the UAM volume , the reason why you cannot write to it is because it is locked on purpose. This volume is there so that if you set up the server to only accept Microsoft encrypted passwords, users have a way to encrypt it. You should leave this volume alone. Just set up another volume with MacFile in the FileManager.
