File System Permissions
Posted on 2010-11-29
I am looking to perform a review of file system permissions on a Solaris Server for the first time. I have done this a fair bit on Windows 2003 Server by reviewing the necessary file shares and directory (NTFS) permissions, but never so on Solaris (bare this in mind on your responses please).
The Solaris Server is a domain server as part of an AD domain which is predominantly made up of 99% windows servers and workstations, with a mere 3 solaris servers for specific applications. What is the most practical way to essentially say:
\\solarisdatabaseserver\backup - who has access /access control list
\\solarisdatabaseserver\database - who has access /access control list
Does Solaris also have the concept of “shares”, i.e. \\host\e$, and also any admin types shares, that are typically only accessible by local administrators?
I also sometimes like to run a directory listing for a server to see where key files are. On Windows I used to do something like
C:>DIR \\solarisdatabaseserver\share$ /s > listing.txt
So basically I could do with:
How to list all shares on the solaris server
How to list all people and users who can access these files on the server
How to get a directory listing per share on the server
And also if all IT admins only have windows machines, what are they likely to use to gain remote access to the server from their windows machine, say for example if someone asks for a log file so they have to logon and get it. What types of client and protocols are used in such examples?
Would prefer some EE input as opposed to just links.
