How to make record read only...??

I want to make a record read only based on the record type to all profiles except system admin.How to achieve this.
For eg. I have a record type "Candidate".For all the records which have candidate as record type should be read only to all profiles except system admin.


This should be a pretty straight forward task in salesforce.

  •  Under Administration Setup select Security Controls
  • Security Controls-> Field Accessibility
  • Select the Object you want to change availability on
  • Choose ViewByProfile
  • Makes sure that the only Profile type in the right-hand list is System Administrator

Let me know how that works out for you.
