Sub admin role - NetWare 6.5

Sub admin role - NetWare 6.5


I am having a problem trying to create a sub admin role so that it's possible to allow password changes and other minor admin tasks but prevent access to the other users home directories.

Also I can see that a particular user can see various folders by checking Effective Rights but I can't trace where the rights have been applied. I have tried blocking Inheritance but still the rights are there.

I'm more than a little rusty with this so any help gratefully received.

RE: Sub admin role - NetWare 6.5

Best thing to do would be to use iManager and setup roles for specific help desk type people. Otherwise it's very difficult to do what you need.
