We are a Linux file server.
I have created a new folder and get a group ownership to that folder. I have given the specific user access to that group.
When a use creates a file or folder it make it read only for all other users.
How can I set it so that any file and sub folder will still retain the same permissions as the parent folder?
I will then also need to run a command that will change all permissions on the all curenly folders already created.

Hi,

you should use chmod command for set permission on sub-folders and files....for example

chmod -R 770 foldername
(-R is use for recursive )

and
(for set default permission)
Now, use the following command to set the default ACL:
#setfacl -dm u::rwx,g::rwx,o::r /directoryname

Hi xeroxzerox

What is the full path for the setfacl command as I get the following when trying to run it.
-bash: setfacl: command not found

Full path of setfacl
/usr/bin/setfacl

If you want any full path of command then just run below command.
#whereis setfacl
if it installed then it gives you full path....

Seems as though setfacl is not installed on the server we have.
Any alternative?
