When someone finishes their research, their data remains on the server and their account stays available. It is however convenient for the other project members to have access to their data to continue pending research. To deal with this issue we change the permissions for the users home directory to 770 and make all their files available to the group they are in. The example below shows how to achieve this for user “user1” part of project “group”.
chown -R user1:group1 /data/home/user1 chmod -R 770 /data/home/user1
