Windows NTFS permissions support
- Windows NTFS permissions support now available for all existing and new filespaces.
- Allow seamless usage of LucidLink on Windows machines managed by a central domain controller.
- Support for all permissions (Open file or folder properties->Security tab).
- Implementation is perfectly suited for service setups, where Lucid filespace is exposed through a share and individual users do not know the filespace username and password. (see limitations below)
Windows NTFS permissions current limitations
- Auditing (see Auditing tab under Advanced settings) is currently not supported.
- Windows Lucid clients with version older than 1.16.1871 will ignore all NTFS permissions set. Can mitigate this concern by:
- either assuring that all Windows Lucid clients connecting to the filespace are version 1.16.1871 or newer;
- or initialize a new filespace using 1.16.1871 Lucid client to ensure no older Windows Lucid clients can connect.
- Any Linux or macOS Lucid client that connects to a filespace will ignore all NTFS permissions set
- `lucid status` now shows connectivity state to the LucidLink service as well as the connectivity state to the object store.
- Improved bandwidth utilization during upload of big files (1GiB+).
- Added more verifications on --reky-s3 command to check for all the necessary S3 endpoint permissions.
- Optimized layout of the metadata DB resulting in less storage, RAM and CPU usage.
- [macOS] Fixed an issue where macOS will increase CPU usage significantly upon receiving high volume of file changes from other clients connected to the filespace. (edited).
