shared folder

  1. Users share folders over the network
    • Permissions are cumulative except with specifically denied
    • Denial of permissions always takes precedence over allow
    • Does not apply when users are logged in locally to system
  2. Two methods to share folders
    • Windows Explorer
    • Microsoft Management Console
    • Discretionary Access Control List (DACL)
    • --List of objects who have been allowed or denied permission
  3. New Technology File System (NTFS)
    • Apply whenever user attempts access (over network or local access)
    • Can only be applied to file systems formatted as NTFS
    • Also are cumulative and inherited by chilled folders, deny overrules allow
    • Can be set at the folder and file level
    • Much more granular than DFS
  4. Encrypted File Systems
    Uses public key cryptography to transparently encrypt / decrypt
  5. Distributed File System (DFS)
    Appears multiple shared file resources are stored in a single hierarchical structure

    • Resembles a tree structure
    • --root
    • --DFS links
  6. File share management
    • Admins are able to see number of users connected to share
    • Disconnect users from a share
    • Send messages to connected users
    • See what files were opened by users
  7. Printer pool / printer priorities
    Local and network
  8. Dynamic Disk Management

    • --Spanned Volume
    • --Striped Volume
    • --Raid 5
    • --Mirrored Volume
  9. Quota management
    • Prevent users from using all disk space
    • Limit types of files
