OS X SL Server: how to share 1T external drive

Hello,
I've just got a Mini running Os X Snow Leopard 10.6.3.
I've successfully install a web server and a FTP across my adsl and a router connection. but I'm facing issue to understand the file management and especially with an external 1 T byte raid hard drive used to extend the space.
I don't find any mechanism to declare this drive sharable and to make it accessible to my users.
Of course I would like to declare folders accessible by user permission (but this will be the next step)
Thank you in advance for your support

Well, in 10.5.x Server, Server Admin -> select the server name, and choose "File Sharing" icon at the top.

I would highly recommend you read the OS X Server documentation.

http://www.apple.com/server/macosx/r...mentation.html

Permissions can be a complex matter when you get into ACLs, etc. So studying the topic will be beneficial and save you headaches.

Best to...

read the manual, but the steps are fairly easy and straight forward.

First, create users,
Second, select your external drive and make it a SharePoint,
Third, assign user permissions for your share point.

All of this is done with Server Prefs app, or the Server Admin app.
