Todays story is about an OSX 10.5.8 server running server 11.0v4.404. It has an external hard drive where we write backups (as well as the usual ~/...Library ones). A few days ago the backup to the external drive stopped - seems the file permissions had reset from fmserver/fmsadmin to admin/staff. Thus this became an invalid path according to the FMS Console. I reached for my usual tool to sort this out - Batchmod - and reset the permissions. Batchmod claims it changed them but when I do a GetInfo I see they are back to admin/staff.
So...issue with the OS? or issue with the disk? I suspect the OS as I just tried another external disk and cannot reset permissions on it either.
