Enabling or Disabling Access Control Lists
You can use Xsan Admin to specify whether the Xsan file system uses access control
lists (ACLs) on a volume.
Xsan 2 clients and Windows StorNext clients recognize ACLs. UNIX clients ignore ACLs
on Xsan volumes. If you have a mix of Windows clients and Xsan clients, they must
all be bound to the same directory domain, whether provided by Open Directory
configured as a primary domain controller (PDC) or by Windows Active Directory.
Note: If you enable ACLs but your SAN includes clients that don’t support them, don’t
use those clients to change file or folder ownership information, or inconsistencies
To enable or disable ACLs:
In Xsan Admin, select Volumes in the SAN Assets list.
Select the volume and choose Edit Volume Settings from the Action (gear) pop-up
Set or clear the checkbox next to Access Control Lists and click OK.
