'Allow owner to see all disks' equivalent in Server Network
I set up a Panther Server with a few shares, and noticed that I (an admin) could mount all of the volumes from an OS 9 workstation, but only the shares from an OS X workstation. I looked for the OS 9 style "Allow owner to see all disks" but couldn't find it. A call to Apple revealed the solution in the following file:
/Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleFileServer.plist
The property admin31GetsSp defaults to true. Change it to false, and logging in to the OS X Server from an OS X workstation as a user in the admin group will allow you to mount the root volumes on the machine.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but this is a new thing with Panther Server, right? IIRC, Jag server allows the admin user to see root vols by default.

FYI, this is also covered by the following Apple documents:
For 10.3.x Server: 107823
For 10.2.x Server: 107621

When I did this it made all my existing shares unreachable and only allowed access to the root of each partition. I was hoping for those shares to still be there. Oh well...

There is another way of changing this property list file: Included in Panther Server is a number of command line admin tools. The corresponding command for this problem is:
sudo serveradmin settings afp:admin31GetsSp = no
This command worked fine for me. All admin command tools are summarized in a huge manual called Command_Line_10.3_Server.pdf. I am not sure if it may be downloaded from Apple or is on one of the install disks.
