To set up a directory that others can access, you need to use the AFS command pts .
For clarity, instead of writing < your-uniqname >, I will just use my uniqname, nichols; replace nichols with your uniqname.
To create your own group (a group MUST begin " uniqname: "), then do the following:
> pts creategroup nichols:650 group nichols:650 has id -12006
> pts adduser -group nichols:650 -user jg11 herbie nichols ck3u zarikian group nichols:650 has id -12006
> pts membership nichols:650 Members of nichols:650 (id: -12006) are: jg11 nichols ck3u herbie zarikian
> fs la /afs/sph.umich.edu/user/n/nichols/650class Access list for /afs/sph.umich.edu/user/n/nichols/650class is Normal rights: system:administrators rlidwka nichols rlidwka
> fs sa /afs/sph.umich.edu/user/n/nichols/650class nichols:650 write
> /usr/local/bin/fs la /afs/andrew/usr/nichols/stats Access list for /afs/andrew/usr/nichols/stats is Normal rights: system:administrators rlidwka nichols:650 rlidwk nichols rlidwka
PS: If you get confused, the command
pts membership nichols
pts examine nichols
