dynamic homeFolder / Permissions

Hallo everybody,

we have a space "a"with a subspace "b". Subspace "b" is the home space of a user.
The user does not have any permission on space "a" and we want the home space "b" to be CIFS mountable for the user.

However, trying to mount the home space using the users credentials I get

The network name cannot be found.

Using another users cretials who has permissions to read space "a" I can mount the filesystem as expected.

I also tried the dynamic repository filesystem approach as documented at

http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/File_Server_Configuration#Home_Folder_Filesystem


Nesting the "homeFolder" tag within <filesystem name="Alfresco"> element does not seem to have any effect.

net use z: \\ip.of.server\HOME password /user:login

also says

The network name cannot be found.

Nesting "homeFolder" in <filesystems> results in a NullpointerException.

Ok, now two questions:

Is CIFS mounting space"b" feasible when the user does not have any permissions on the parent space "a" ?

What am I missing in the dynamic filesystem approach ?

I cannot get any user to mount the home space using the share"HOME".

PS: I am using alfresco 2.1 community.

regards
Andreas
