Ignoring File server ACL's: We are having a lot of problems with CC program files on our File servers. Since we are around 50 creative people we use Apple file servers to handle all our Adobe CC files. But we having problems with Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator when saving files on the File servers. Apple is using Access Control List to manage permissions (ACL) on the file share - and our file servers are BIND to our Active Directory server (running Windows Server 2008). When a user is saving a file on the server all the ACL’s looks fine - but the old UNIX posix permission is also there and since they are Read only - all other users who are trying to open files and make changes can't save - and get error from the Adobe CC program - if you then manually fix the UNIX posix permission issue - there is no problem - but will return when a new user is trying to do the same. So it looks like that Adobe CC programs ignore the ACL's and only check the UNIX posix permission (which we can change). We have tested this with other programs like Word and excel - and they work fine. Apple has been using ACL for at least 6 years - so I don’t get it why this is still a problem.
