Flashcards in Chapter 6: Providing File Services - 11 Questions Deck (11)
Name three file-sharing protocols supported by Lion Server and their principal target clients.
AFP for Mac clients, SMB for Windows clients, and WebDAV for iOS devices are three file-sharing protocols supported by Lion Server.
How does Lion Server support browsing for Windows clients?
Lion Server uses NetBIOS to advertise its presence to Windows clients; Windows users see Lion Server in their Network Neighborhood or Network Places.
When does an access control entry (ACE) for a folder’s access
control list (ACL) get propagated to items in the folder?
An ACE of a folder’s ACL is propagated to a new item that’s created in that folder, or copied into that folder from another volume, if the inheritance options for the ACE apply. Also, an administrator can select a folder in the Storage pane of the Server app, choose Propagate Permissions from the Action pop-up menu, select the Access Control List checkbox, and click OK. Finally, if you use the File Sharing pane to modify an ACL that has been inherited, the changes will be propagated.
What two actions are necessary to provide a network home folder for a network user?
You need to first edit a share point and select the checkbox “Make available for home directories.” Then you can edit a user, and select that share point in the Home Folder pop-up menu.
What permissions can you choose for an ACE in the File Sharing pane of the Server app?
In the File Sharing pane of the Server app, when you edit an ACE, you can choose Read & Write, Read, or Write.
What permissions can you specify for an ACE in the Storage pane of the Server app?
In the Storage pane of the Server app, when you edit an ACE, you can select checkboxes for 13 kinds of permissions. The categories include Administration, Read, and Write.
In the Storage pane of the Server app, what four rules for inheritance can you apply to an ACE?
There are four inheritance rules: folder, child folders, child files, and all descendants.
How do you remove an inherited ACE?
In the Storage pane of the Server app, navigate to the item that has an ACL, click the Action pop-up menu, choose Edit Permissions, click the Action pop-up menu, and choose Remove Inherited Entries.
What might it mean if you see a GUID rather than a user
name in an ACL?
If you see a GUID instead of a user name, it could mean that you removed a user or a group from your Lion Server, and the ACE is displaying that user or group’s GUID because it can’t map the GUID to a user or a group.
What URL should you use from an iOS device to save to a WebDAV-enabled share point hosted by the Lion Server at server17.pretendco.com, if the web service on the Lion Server uses an SSL certificate?
In the iOS application that supports WebDAV, you would use the URL https://server17.pretendco.com/webdav. Depending on the application, you’ll see a list of share points that support WebDAV.
