read/write problems with AFP sevices
We have just started using OSX server (hardware and software)
We have a large number of users who need to be able to read and write each others files without restriction, and very inexperienced administrator (ME!)
The best I have been able to do so far is set up each of the drives (other than the boot volume) on the server as share points using AFP and have all the users sign on as guests.
It seems that we get very unpredictable behvior in terms of reliably being able to read and write to the files on the server. In one case a user created a photoshop file, and then was unable to save over the same file name because the priveledges were incorrec t.
For now I am manually resetting all priveledges to all read/write every morning.
I just don't see why this is happening and how to fix it.
Is there a way to set the default priveledges that are created when a user creates a file on the server?
Is there a better way to have people log in? When we started we had individual log-ins for each user and they could only then work on their own files.
Why doesn't the group for a created file reflect the group of the user that created it and allow others in that group to R/W that file?
Should I instead be using WebDav or some other sharing schema?
Hlep me obi wan kenobi - the apple docs are entirely unclear!
