Setting new Mac fileshare default to Read/Write instead of Read-on



On our new Win2K3 file servers, new mac shares are set as Read-Only by
default. This was not the normal behavior in Win2K (or we did some
long-forgotten system tweak to change this.)

It's annoying since I keep forgetting to find the share after creating it,
then unchecking that box in the properties.

Where do I change this property?

This was indeed changed in Win2k3 and I can't suggest a change that will
change this default. However you can create shared volumes from the command
line and set this parameter at the same time.

macfile volume /add /name:volumename /path:directory path /readonly:false
