prohibit deleting qtree's from cifs

Hello,

We are using ONTAP 8.2 7-Mode. I need to prohibit CIFS users deleting qtree's where users have MODIFY right.

Is there any way to achieve this from ONTAP side?

Thanks.

Re: prohibit deleting qtree's from cifs

Use special NTFS permissions. You can apply a special NTFS permission at the root of the qtree so that users can only view/nevigate/create files/subfolders. Then add modify permissions to the subfolders under the qtree. You don't have to break NTFS permission's inheritance between the qtree and subfolders.

I am actually looking for a solution from NetApp side.

You can handle these operations with storage-level security configuration  using fsecurity command.

http://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/tools/secedit/ can be used for generate configuration file.
