Files (AFS) permissions


We are new to Files (AFS) 3.0 and have some question regarding setting permissions so that all users can read a share/export.

We are looking to use Files for project based shares/exports and not all uses should be able to see each share/export. By default it looks like Domain Users has Read/Write based on the Builtin//Users group.
  1. Can this group be removed and replaced with another?
  2. What is the best tool for doing this?

On the Nutanix Portal, under Downloads > Tools & Firmware. Filter the list using "MMC" as the search criteria. You should see Microsoft Management Console Snap-In for AFS(MMC). You can use this MMC snap-in to manage/modify the default permissions on each share.
