Customers may want to use Windows NT Services for Macintosh to share information on CD-ROM with Macintosh clients. This is not possible with Microsoft LAN Manager Services for Macintosh.
Windows NT Server and Advanced Server use the Windows NT file system (NTFS) to store a file's resource fork and permissions in the space dedicated to the extended attributes.
However, the CD file system (CDFS) volumes are read-only medium; therefore, the permissions are defaulted to Read access.
Services for Macintosh allows Macintoshes to utilize PC-compatible CDs in drives attached to the server. It does NOT allow Macintosh-compatible CDs to be read or shared by a Windows NT Server or Advanced Server.
To create a Macintosh volume on CD-ROM, do the following:
- From the File Manager, select the directory on the CD that you want to designate as a Macintosh-accessible volume.
- From the MacFile menu, choose Create Volume.
- In the Volume Name box, type a volume name that Macintosh users will see when they log on.
- Specify a new path and password, if necessary. The security defaults to read-only because of the nature of CDFS.
- Choose the OK button.
