File and directory permission settings

You can view and configure the default source permissions and UNIX create mask/mode bits that are applied when a file or directory is created in an SMB share.

Note Image

Changes that are made directly to an SMB share override the default settings that are configured from the Default SMB Share Settings tab.

If the mask and mode bits match the default values, a green check mark next to a setting appears, indicating that the specified read (R), write (W), or execute (X) permission is enabled at the user, group, or "other" level. The "other" level includes all users who are not listed as the owner of the share, and are not part of the group level that the file belongs to.
Setting
Setting value
Continuous Availability Timeout
Specifies the amount of time you want a persistent handle to be retained after a client is disconnected or a server fails. The default is 2 minutes.
Strict Continuous Availability Lockout
Prevents a client from opening a file if another client has an open but disconnected persistent handle for that file. If set to no, OneFS issues persistent handles, but discards them if any client other than the original opener tries to open the file. The default is no.
Create Permission
Sets the default source permissions to apply when a file or directory is created. The default value is Default ACL.
Directory Create Mask
Specifies UNIX mode bits that are removed when a directory is created, restricting permissions. Mask bits are applied before mode bits are applied.
Directory Create Mode
Specifies UNIX mode bits that are added when a directory is created, enabling permissions. Mode bits are applied after mask bits are applied.
File Create Mask
Specifies UNIX mode bits that are removed when a file is created, restricting permissions. Mask bits are applied before mode bits are applied.
File Create Mode
Specifies UNIX mode bits that are added when a file is created, enabling permissions. Mode bits are applied after mask bits are applied.
