How to give read only permissions to a unix qtree in cifs


Iam accessing the NetApp filers from a common Maintanance host using rsh.

I need to set permissions for an unix qtree to be accessed via CIFS. In CIFS mode the Unix qtree must have only read permissions.

Can you please help me in this.



I would set the the share level ACL such that everyone has read access. CIFS should respect the most restrictive permissions so any file that was writable by the WAFL permission bits (in this case UNIX permission bits) should be over-ridden by the share-level ACL.
