Securing Network Access to DASDs

Securing Network Access to DASDs

This setting determines whether data in the direct access storage device (DASD) is accessible to other users. This value entry satisfies, in part, the C2 security requirement that you must be able to secure removable media. Because the DASD is a volume, by default it is shared as an administrative share on the network. If the option is on, the DASD is allocated to the user as part of the interactive logon process and, therefore, only the current user can access it. This prevents administrators and remote users (and even the same user at a different workstation) from accessing the DASD while the current user is logged on. The DASD is shared again when the current user logs off.

Option affects the whole PC. Reboot your PC to activate or deactivate this option.

Applicable to Windows NT/2000/XP.
