Hello,

I have a problem sharing a folder with AFS.

I am sharing an existing folder, say /Share, under OS X 10.3.8 with SharePoints V3.5.1. I have two users in group 'staff', say 'user' and 'admin' that have read/write permission on the folder and subfolders. User 'admin' is also administrator.
The group settings in SharePoints seem to be alright. Both users and root are in group 'staff'. The administrator is no normal user in the AFS settings.

When I mount the shared folder with on of the users from another OS X 10.3.8 Mac using AFS I only get guest permissions. When I mount using SMB the permissions are correct.
When I mount with the administrator user, the AFS permission are correct too.

I played around with chown, chgrp and chmod like:

cd /
chown -R admin Share
chgrp -R staff Share
chmod -R 770 Share

For now I gave everybody read/write permission (chmod -R 777 Share) and the sharing works.

It seems the group permission in AFS are not working properly.

Could somebody help me out of here?

Thanks in advance,

Christian

Well, everything you are telling me sounds right so far. Have you tried repairing permissions on your drive lately? That may help.

Tried repairing permissions, but did not help.

Anything else I could look after?

Are the other users admin users as well? If so, try connecting as a non-admin user.

The other users are no admins but, as I said, they get guest priviliges although they should have group priviliges.

In which file are the share points saved? I could have a look in there.

All the shares are stored and updated in the NetInfo database. You can use the NetInfo Manager to look at the NetInfo database if you like.

Mmh...

In NetInfo Manager the entries /afpuser_aliases/*user*/alias_data have the value <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>.

Is this ok?

I'll have to look at that when I get home and have access to a Mac.

I'm not sure exactly what the /afpuser_aliases bit is, but I have it in my NetInfo database as well.
