There are a number of ways to set up shared storage - volumes, shared folders, virtual volumes.  

Simply creating a home folder and then connecting to it produces:  Cannot Write to Volume - User or Volume Permissions.

The Atlas product manual and software manuals do not suggest a best practice or give an example.   I have a small video editing workgroup of up-to-date macs, including iMacPro.   My goal is to set up high speed editing via 10GbE, with shared connections for distribution.      It would be great to get a step by step walk through this set up.  I have a number of Pegasus raids, and bought this unit as relatively DAS storage savy video editor, not corporate IT manager.   Resources aimed at me would be welcome.  

ps - hope admin will move this to appropriate category when setup.

Hi Mike,

Users home folders are created when a local user is created with the default options, but home folders are private and a user cannot see or access another user's home folder. 

If I understand what you want to do correctly, a shared folder would better meet your needs.

There are already several Atlas S8+ KB articles posted, I will see if we can get a shared storage KB article up ASAP.

Also, a forum area for the Atlas S8+ has been created.

Is it possible to change the default permissions on a user home folder, such that everyone can read, but only a the user can write?

No, home folders are for private use and you cannot change permissions on them. This is what shared folders are for, you can grant any user Read Write access, Read Only access, or deny access altogether.
