Here’s the scenario, I work in a video lab where they use several firewire hard drives to make it easy for users to move easily between G5’s and iMac’s.
The lab manager wants folks to make a folder with their name on it on a given drive and save all their files there. She would like to know how to make these folders read only/or completely locked off from other users by default, so you could make a folder on a HD and not have to open the “Get Info” window to secure it.
What would we need to do to the drives (permissions, script, voodoo incantation) to make this the default behavior for any user?
NOTE: We’re on an network authenticating off of Active Directory/LDAP so the local users are being created on the fly…
Thank you in advance, I look forward to any help folks can offer.
