Inheriting Permissions of Parent Folders Mac OSX Server 10.7.5
Posted on 2013-05-29
I would like to make it so folders created by users in shared folders over AFP to the Mac server inherit the permissions of the parent folder. Is there any way to do this? If not, is there a way to make new folders have a default set of permissions that I would define?
I've attempted to edit the ACL and POSIX permissions of the shares but nothing seems to effect the permissions of newly created folders. I've also tried changing the umask setting to 002 on the server itself. Changing the umask setting only effects the permissions of newly created folders when created locally on the server.
Currently we have to propagate the permissions throughout the entire share in order for the new folders to have the correct permissions. This is not acceptable due to the amount of folders that are created daily.
We are using Mac OS X Lion Server 10.7.5. All clients are Mac computers.
