WFA: Create Volume with fixed security style (7-Mode)

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

for my workflows, I needed to set volume security style to "ntfs", so I modified the "create volume" command (only 7-Mode) and created 2 versions of it:

 

  1. Create 7-Mode volume - fixed NTFS security style
  2. Create 7-Mode volume - fixed UNIX security style

Maybe someone can used it for his workflows.

 

I attached the DAR Files (created and exported them with WFA 4.1RC1) to this posting.

Re: WFA: Create Volume with fixed security style

Just as an FYI another way to do this is in the templates. You can create a NTFS template and UNIX template and appaly them to workflows accrodingly. You can use the volume object as the type of filterr and set you can set all kinds of default values within it including security style.

Hi Nick,

 

thank you for your tip. Your described way is more complicated Smiley Happy

 

  • Create Cache Querie (with table join)
  • Create Dicitonary
  • Create Filter

...but more effective for future use!

 

Thank you,

Lukas

Lukas, 

 

Sorry I don't think my explanation was that good. Templates are built in to WFA you don't have to create custom dictionaries and SQL filters for a new volume object you just create your template choose the default volume object for the stroage schema (This loads in all the attributes that are available for that object) and set all you settings there in the template. You then apply that template to the create volume command in your workflow to automatically get all the settings you specified in the template. I have NTFS and UNIX ones setup but also specify other things in them like dedupe, space reservation options, default junction paths. Any volume setting you can make when you are creating a volume are in the default template provided. Screenshot attached.

Hi Nick,

 

thank your for your detailed explanation. New template for cDOT Volume contains "security style" but not template for 7-Mode Volume. The security Style is only @ qtree included...

That is why I modified the commands.
