What will happen to all our shares and such if I change root to be *public to *exclude? I don't want to change it then break everything on the system. A couple of our applications already use the IFS. Does it just change the root authority and doesn't change access for anything else? Obviously I will try this on a off time when I won't interrupt anyone.
