Changing permission on a NFS export

Changing permission on a NFS export

Changing permission on a NFS export

I have NFS up and working properly, I think.

I can access (read) the shares through MyNetwork, defaut.

I have one problem however. For some reason all folders on my export do not have Write enabled in the "NFS Atribute". Is there a way to enable write for all directories and their sub directories at one time. I can enable Write function one directory at a time. It will take me a year to do it and make sure I did all of them. (Write is not enabled for any user, Owner groups or other)

Also I have gone into the "Services for Unix" administrator and enabled file permision for R W and X. I am assuming this, as it does mention, will enable all subsequent files saved to the hard drive with all three, RWX, enabled is this correct?

Is there a way to enable Read, Write for the entire share, without having to do it one folder at a time?

Thank you in advance.
