OS X Server 10.5

Hi Everyone,

I am a PC guy who has inherited an Apple Xserve running 10.5x and I have two questions:

1. How do I "lock" the top level of a shares so that users cannot rename, delete or move directories. This should only be true for the root that they land on when they mount the share.

2. We only have one share and all users attach to it using the same user account. However, the OS X Server seems to also being publishing the home folder for this single user. When I go to delete the predefined home folder for this user to leave only "none" it seems to want to delete the users home folder which makes me nervous. What is the correct way to do this?

Thanks in advance.

This needs to be done through your Workgroup manager under the icon labeled sharing

Locate the shared folder and from here you can then make all necessary security changes.
