Permissions issues with Cache-A
on Nov 20, 2013 at 9:59:27 pm

Tom, another question for you:

Usually, I hook up external drives to our Cache-A and archive directly to the tape from the drive. However, sometimes I'll use the Cache-A Share to temporarily 'park' items to be archived. For example, when we need to order more LTO tapes, I'll put items there until we get more in stock.

Deleting files from the Cache-A Share has never been an issue. I navigate to the device at the Finder level on my Mac Pro and delete.

However, last week, I needed to pull some items back from tape, I didn't have enough room on the RAID that's attached to my Mac Pro, so I put them on the Cache-A Share, and after clearing enough space, I moved them back onto my RAID.

However, when I try to delete these items from the Cache-A Share, I get permissions errors, and I can't delete anything. I get the message that 'I don't have access to some of the items'. This has only happened with the items that have been pulled from tape to the Cache-A share, and never with items that have been put there via Finder.

Any advice on how to delete these items from the Cache-A Share?
