ONTAP 9

Clustered Data ONTAP 8

Description

The owner of a file is able to change permission and delete files that they create. However, the owner is unable to change ownership to another user. Non-root users are unable to change ownership of files. This is because the option chown-mode is set to restricted by default in ONTAP.
