Openfiler Permission Problems
Posted on 2014-02-25
I have a openfiler NAS in with one of my customers in which in the start one of the Shares went a bit funny and has not accessible as per normal from the Windows 2008 Terminal Server and other workstations via the mapped drive on that windows session and desktop, coming up with a Permission Problem.
The internal IT guy to try and do a quick fix, changed the Access mode on the Share from Controlled to Public Access which seem to bugger it up more.
he also then changed some of the other shares to Public instead of Controlled not sure why but...
So now its all a bit up the creak and cant access most shares, come go into it say one level up on the share so can connect to the share but once in there cant go to the next directory, others might go a little further.
Anyway, i have tried to change the most important one back to Accessed Controlled but it time-out after leaving it for a while and still doesn't work, this share is quiet big, has almost 300GB of Data in there.
I am not a great Linux person but know enough to follow someone advise
I presume the permissions have gone off the directories and files but i cant seem to get them back on.
The other thing the Internal IT Guy did is try and re-join it to the AD so that might have caused some issues.
I deleted it out of AD and rejoined it and that seems ok
We also had some issue accessing it via \\server-name but OK if I did the IP \\192.168.100.201
Anyway hope this is enough info to start the ball rolling.
