ACL errors

Well I tried running this in terminal and now my Lacie drive will not connect. What I was told is that doing this removes the ACL Errors Here is what I did in terminal

Essentially open up a terminal and do the following:

cd /
ls -le

look at the Applications and Library folders in the listing and you should see they have specific ACLs. On one of my machines the Applications folder had 2 and the Library had one. On the other both had just one.

to remove these ACLs do the following:

sudo chmod -a# 0 "/Applications"
sudo chmod -a# 0 "/Library"

After that my network drive will not mount

Is there a reason why you had to remove the ACLs? AFAIK if you are removing them only because you are seeing acl errors at the permission log file in leopard then it is totally unnecessary.

ACL errors codes should be ignored in leopard for now.

I was trying to remove them because it take like 2.5 hours to run.

heres the command i used to remove my ACL error in /Library

Code:
sudo chmod -R -N /Library
try this it may fix your connect to server issue.

Mac Pilot says that error code -36 is an IO error (bummers) if that means anything to you… (cracks up) bummers!

removing the ACL issue wont speed up the repair of permissions. Disk Utility is just slow in Leopard and it will be fixed in later versions.

There is nothing wrong with the disk utility in leopard. It just works differently than the one in tiger it's doing a lot more, but just basically looks the same as the old disk utility.

mmm i dunno? i dont think im entirely incorrect. Leopard Disk Utility is version 11 and Tiger's was 10. Leopard now has a different receipt system which Disk Utility checks when repairing permissions but this hasnt fully been optimised yet so its slow.

Do you even know on what did I said "correct"?

Removing any ACL due to acl error codes in your console log file is unnecessary. That's what I meant. It won't help in speeding up your system at all.

Your "incorrect" answer is not even relevant to either richthomas' or my reply.

Where is the LaCie drive you are trying to mount? Is it being hosted by another Mac, or is it a standalone network appliance?

In my own experience, I have run into some Apple File Sharing issues related to a corrupt byte-range locking file. There is a file located in /Library/Preferences (at the root, not in your home folder) called com.apple.ByteRangeLocking.plist. Delete this file on the host computer and reboot (or restart Apple File Sharing).

Constant acl errors

I got my new MBP 15 and retored from a backup on the Time Machine drive. I have had constant ACL errors and all sorts of problems including SLOW ever since. I've repaired permissions heaps, tried ACLr8 (twice), and its still all there. I'm guessing this is a problem with the user name, and I'll need a new one, but what do I do to stop the same happening again, and how do I not lose all the updates and permissions?
