Hello Mac Experts <smile>


  1. Brand new Mac Pro SERVER running 10.7.1 (Lion) with eight brand new IMac’s also running 10.7
  2. All end users have been set up in the “Server Application” on the server just fine.
  3. This server is ONLY a data server and all of the original data has been copied from the old Mac server to this new Mac server.
  4. End users have perfect full control over existing folders and files from old Mac server.


New folders that are created on the shared hard drive on the server from any of the end users workstations do NOT have full read and write privileges.

I would REALLY appreciate someone pointing me in the correct direction. I am an A+ certified, MCSE and am new to Macs.

Thanks in advance <smile>

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.1), Full SERVER on a domain

    You need to set an ACL for the group on shared hard drive so that the permissions will inheirt.

    This is all very odd to me as EVERY single install of OS X 10.5, 10.6, and 10.7 have required me to set a root password before any root privilege is available.  Both client and Server versions.  I have NEVER had even one of the above mention OS ever use the first created admin's password for root.  I have always had to go in and enable a root password before I can use su, sudo, or root login.
