XSan Permission Issue and ..
We currently moved from
Mac OSX 10.6.x MDCs using XSAN 2.2.x / Mac OSX Open Directory / XSAN 2.2.x Mac OS X 10.6.x Clients / Promise Storage ( all connected via Fiber Switch )
StorNext MDCs ( M440 Appliance ) version 4.7/ New Storage / Old Promise Storage was left intact and still being utilized / New MAC OS X 10.8.x XSAN Clients / Two new Windows 2008 Servers utilizing Stornext Clients All still connected via Fiber Switch.
All The Fiber connected Clients Mac OS X 10.8.x ( XSAN Client ) via Fiber & Two Windows 2008 R2 Server ( Stornext Client ) can see the old ( XSAN ) LUNs & the new ( StorNext ) LUNs and mount the volumes ( lets call this xsan1 and snfs1 ) I can see and access ALL the folders via the MAC OS X 10.8.x fiber clients but via Windows I see the volume but am not able to access "all" the contents. At first I saw the generic permission message indicating " You don't currently have permission to access this folder. Click continue to permanently get access to this folder"
At which point I can choose to continue, and take ownership of the folder. that works to a certain extent but I still get access denied while taking ownership of multiple folders and so on ..... I have been reading up on this issue and came across few things but figured I would come to the PROs and see what is the best way to approach this issue.
I also would like to utilize my Active Directory Domain to authenticate users to login to the MACs and also permission to the old Xsan volume and new snfs volume.
any help is greatly appreciated and I look forward to hearing from the PROs
