Windows Server 2008 - Setting up a share on a remote storage device - NetApp

Hi Experts,

How do you setup the folder permissions within Windows Server 2008, to use a dedicated storage device (NetApp)?

I know that the NetApp will allow you to share a folder and link it back to AD, but the permission isn't granular enough.  What about subfolders and more complicated folder structures?

Thanks for any help you can offer.  I am trying to prevent myself from reading the 300+ page pdf file that tech support sent me.

Netapp CIFS uses Microsoft's NTFS permissions. So you setup shares on the Netapp and then setup folders/subfolders/files using Security Tab as you would on a windows server

Thanks for you help.  I changed the Security style from Unix to NTFS (I thought that I had done this already) and performed your instructions above without issue.

Thanks again,

Yep.  When you change from unix to NFS make sure that you setup Kerberos on the volume.  You may need to reshare a volume when you change security style, I've have seen this as well.
