NAME

fs_chown - Changes the owner for an object stored within AFS [Windows only]

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

fs chown -owner <owner> -path <dir/file path>+
[-literal][-help]

DESCRIPTION

The fs chown command assigns the specified owner to each object specified with the -path.

If the -literal argument is specified, the targets of symlinks and mountpoints are not resolved. This permits the ownership of the symlink or mountpoint to be assigned.

The owner can be specified by name or by number. If specified by name, the name will be resolved to the numeric value by querying the protection server in the cell for each specified -path object.

To display the current owner, use the fs examine command.

CAUTIONS

Explicit or implicit administrator access rights are required to be able to change the owner of an object stored in AFS. Changing ownership can alter the current user’s implicit rights.

This command is available in versions of OpenAFS for Windows 1.5.61 and higher.

OPTIONS

-owner <owner> A valid name or number of a user identifier in the Protection Service database.
-path <dir/file path>+ Names each AFS directory or file, on which the owner will be set. Partial pathnames are interpreted relative to the current working directory.

Specify the read/write path to each directory to avoid the failure that results from attempting to change a read-only volume. By convention, the read/write path is indicated by placing a period before the cell name at the pathname’s second level (for example, /afs/.abc.com). For further discussion of the concept of read/write and read-only paths through the filespace, see the fs mkmount reference page.

-literal When specified, the targets of symlinks and mountpoints are not resolved. This permits the ownership of the symlink or mountpoint to be assigned.
-help Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

The issuer must have the a (administer) permission on the directory’s ACL, a member of the system:administrators group, or, as a special case, must be the UID owner of the top-level directory of the volume containing the object.
