Enable or disable Dynamic Access Control overview

Contributors

The option that enables you to use Dynamic Access Control (DAC) to secure objects on your CIFS server is disabled by default. You must enable the option if you want to use Dynamic Access Control on your CIFS server. If you later decide that you do not want to use Dynamic Access Control to secure objects stored on the CIFS server, you can disable the option.
