Thread: Ownership and Permissions
11-12-2004, 05:27 PM #1devanoff1113GuestOwnership and Permissions
Hello, at my workplace we have seven power macs with OS 10.3.6. We do a lot of file sharing, moving and editing and I'm having the biggest problem with ownerships and permissions. Am I stupid or does "Apply to enclosed items" mean that the permissions you set for the 'parent' folder would cascade to all the subfolders and files within that 'parent' folder? This is the problem that I am having, it does not cascade to those folders/files. I'd prefer to just have permissions disabled so I wouldn't have to worry about it, but I guess I'm missing the option in the "Get Info" palette of being able to Ignore Ownership and Permission for this Volume for my system hard drive since it is not there. Any ideas/solutions would be greatly appreicated, thank you.

Are you the admin user when you try to set permissions?

Yes, I am an administrator.
