NetStorage provides the ability to view or change NSS and NCP directory and file attributes and rights. If you have created a Storage Location object by using NCP, the ability to change file and directory attributes is limited unless you are logged in as user Admin or equivalent. This limitation does not apply if you have created a Storage Location object by using SSH. See Creating a Storage Location Object for more information.
To view or modify directory or file rights by using NetStorage:
Start your browser and specify the URL for NetStorage.
The URL is http://server_ip_address/oneNet/NetStorage/. Replace server_ip_address with the IP address or DNS name of the server running NetStorage or the IP address for Apache-based services. If Apache-based services use a port other than 80, you must also specify that port number with the URL.
For example, if the IP address for NetStorage is 127.1.1.1, then you would specify 127.1.1.1/oneNet/NetStorage/.
In the above example, if you had changed the port number to 51080, then you would specify 127.1.1.1:51080/oneNet/NetStorage/.
Although the oneNet portion of the URL is required if you are using WebDAV (Web Folders), it is not required if you are using a browser. In a browser, you can use 127.1.1.1/NetStorage/.
The date and time on the workstation being used to access NetStorage should be (within a few hours) of the date and time on the server running NetStorage to avoid conflicts.
Enter your username and password.
NetStorage uses your Novell eDirectory username and password, so you don’t need to remember or use a separate username or password.
Right-click the directory or file you want to view or modify attributes or rights for and select.
Click thetab to view or modify directory or file attributes. Click the tab to view or modify file system trustee rights.
Although the option label refers to NetWare, use the option for your Linux NSS and non-NSS volumes, and your NetWare NSS volumes. For information about file system trustees, trustee rights, and attributes for directories and files on NSS volumes, see the OES 2 SP3: NSS File System Administration Guide for Linux.
For additional information on directory and file attributes and rights, see the Novell Client 4.91 SP5 for Windows XP/2003 Installation and Administration Guide.
NOTE:Viewing or changing directory and file attributes and rights through NetStorage is only possible with a browser. This functionality is not available through Microsoft Web Folders.
