The owner of the security descriptor can modify the permissions on the file (or folder) or files (or folders) to which the security descriptor is applied and can give other users the right to take ownership of the object or objects to which the security descriptor is applied.

                 cluster1::> vserver security file-directory ntfs show -vserver vs1 -ntfs-sd sd2

                                     Vserver: vs1
