I'm trying to use this NAS as a temporary file server while our file server is rebuilt. I'm having problems figuiring out how to set folder permissions on folders within a share. I've linked to Active Directory and I can easily assign permissions to the created share, but I'm unable to assign specific permissions to the folders I create within this share (from within Windows). I would expect to have this functionality so I must be over looking something. I have assigned "domain admins" to have read/write permissions on the share. I then access this share as the domain admin from Server 2003 and create new folders within it. When i attempt to change permissions on my newely created folder I receive the following error:
Unable to save permission changes on New Folder.
Access is denied.
If I check the owner of the file it is owned by the user account who created the folder. I have tried this on the server with the domain Admin account, as well as on my pc with my domain user account.

I just got off the phone with support and wanted to post their response for anyone else that may be trying to do this.
Unfortunately this is not possible. Folder permissions can only be set on the share level and not on the folders within that share.
Hopefully we can get this "feature" added to a future firmware update.

Hi There, I have my Terastation on a Windows 2003 AD. I have shared a Folder and given permissions to a Group which has users in it but the user isn't able to access the share the user just gets prompted for a user id and password?

I have a LinkStation Pro Duo - model: LS-WTGL/R1-V3 F/W 3.07
I'm having access issues with a sub-folder within a shared folder. All access restrictions are disabled via the web-based control panel. When I view the sub-folder's settings, it is set to write-only access. I have no idea how this setting was enabled... and there is no way to even delete the folder. I even tried using chmod in ftp to change the permissions, but that doesn't work either.

Tech support is working on adding new features that will enable folder and file ACL's (Access control lists) to the unit. At this time there is no release date.
It's nearly two years later, have they accomplished that yet?
