34.11 Controlling File System Access and Attributes for NSS Volumes

To ensure that users have the appropriate effective file system rights to data on NSS volumes, make explicit file system trustee assignments, grant security equivalences for users, and filter inherited rights. To simplify the assignment of rights, you can create Group and Organizational Role objects in Novell eDirectory, then assign users to the groups and roles.

Set file system attributes for directories and files on an NSS volume to specify how a file or directory is used.

For information about controlling file system access and attributes for NSS volumes, see Understanding File System Access Control Using Trustees in the NW 6.5 SP8: File Systems Management Guide.
