Novell and Trustee File Assignments

By lrolston ·
I have a user that continues to lose access to a file I continue to give her access to! I am giving access to one particular file in a directory by using the Trustee File Assigmnet function in Syscon. Each time I have set it up, I go to her computer to make sure she really does have access, she does. The next time she needs the file, it's missing!
We are running a Novell 3.2 server.
Any suggestions?
Thank you
Lindy

Well, they've probably told you that before, but why not consider an upgrade to at least 4.11?

Good question, but doesn't help me correct the problem at hand. We are not ready to upgrade, any other suggestions?

Does this file get updated often? If so, how does it get updated? If someone just alters the existing file the trustee assignment should stay. However, if the file actually gets replaced during the update (the process actually overwrites the filewhich, technically, deletes the file) the file-level trustee assignment would be lost.

You'll probably have to consider a directory-level rights assignment.

Good question, the file does get updated often. I will try to give access from the directory instead.

Think about the answer gievn number 2. If the file is a microsoft excel file each time you save it the file is deleted and then the new one is saved with a made up name and then renamed to the original file name. this wold then give you a problem.why not just create a sub directory and assign the rights to that ?

Good thought, I will take number 2's answer and see what happens.
