I have a 10.6.8 server that shares files for multiple Macs and PCs.
For the most part is works fine.
All users are in Open Directory.
A user complained that they could not read any of the Excel files in 1 particular folder.
The effective permissions inspector showed no problems for those files for that user, YET, they were told they ddin't have permission to read the file!
A closer inspection in Server Admin, showed that all of those files had greyed out custom permssions for the group.
I could fix the problem by click on a file, then choosing Make Inherited Permissions Explicit.
That allowed me to change the group permissions to read/write.
Strangely, the parent folder permissions were fine.
AND.. propogating permissions did NOT fix it for me!
I had to fix the files one by one.
Does anyone have any insight into this problem?
How about setting ACL's for the share?
