KB-2895: Mounting shared folders in OS X 10.7 and higher requires read access through the whole tree.

Centrify Identity Service, Mac Edition ,  

12 April,16 at 11:31 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl on Mac OS X 10.7 and above.
 
Question:
 
When mounting a network share on OS X 10.7 and above, the operation may fail with a notice that the user does not have permission to see its contents.
 
The same mount path worked with no problems in OS X 10.6:
  • smb://server.domain.com/Sharepoint/Folder1/Folder2/
 
Where:
  • Folder1 has restricted security permissions to the AD user.
  • Folder2 has read access for the AD user.
 
Answer:
 
Mounting shared folders in OS X 10.7 and above now require a different permission structure than in OS X 10.6 and below:
  • In OS X 10.6, the user only needs read permissions for Folder2
  • In OS X 10.7 and above, the user will need read permissions through the whole tree – Sharepoint, Folder1 and Folder2.
 
This is a change made Apple, please see the following Apple KB for more information:
