Well, I am pretty sure that should not have happened.  However, I can tell you another way.

Now you do this
chmod g-x,o+rx Dirname

Open in new window


See how this works out.

Let me explain more of what I need to do. I need to rename an existing directory that has permissions of  drwxr-Sr-x

Then I need to create a new directory to replace the one I renamed and set the permissions to match the one I renamed.

When I create the new directory it has permissions of drwxrws---

I need the permissions to be drwxr-Sr-x
