How to toggle permissions from the command line
Authored by: overhack on Aug 05, '03 03:07:57PM

I discovered this by reading Mike Bombich's Apple Software Restore page:

The vsdbutil command doesn't just toggle the "Ignore ownership on this volume" for the time that the volume is mounted, but for all time. By running vsdbutil -a /Volumes/MountPoint you add the GUID of the mounted filesystem to the computer's database of "local" filesystems, a.k.a. those on which it recognizes ownership.
