    Default NTFS FOLDER PERMISSION ISSUE on major deployment of opensuse

    Hello I am doing major deployment of opensuse 313 pcs from windows to opensuse. I am having a problem that I have to keep 2 ntfs partitions intact will deleting the partition that has windows. Now everything goes well, opensuse installs but the problem is that I cannot give user full rights to ntfs folders. I have used graphical file permission methods n terminal chown n chmod methos but still permissions revert back to root. I would appreciate a quick help in this matter

    There is guidance here: SDB:NTFS - openSUSE

    In essence you need to edit the /etc/fstab file, changing fmask=113 and dmask=002.

    I do NOT know how to do that across 313 PCs (other than to do it one PC at a time). Sorry.
