This change was introduced due to the following considerations:
- It heightens the default security by preventing change of ownership where root user is not involved.
- A number of UNIX implementations exhibit the same behavior where change of ownership by normal users is not permitted by default.
o change this behavior, change the value of the following registry key to 0 and restart Server for NFS:
In a failover cluster environment, run the following command to set this value:
cluster resource <NFS-Resource> /privproperties RestrictChown=0
On Windows Server 2008 and earlier, you can change the value of this registry key to 1 to change the chown behavior to match that of Windows Server 2008 R2.
