Solaris Common Desktop Environment: User's Guide


Suppose that the values for Owner and Group for a user named Carla are otto and otto_staff, respectively. The value for Other (call it otto_other) is everyone at Carla's company except for Carla and the members of otto_staff. Carla creates these required Default ACLs on her folder named Project1:

Any file or folder subsequently placed in the Project1 folder inherits these basic permissions from Project1:

Also, the file or folder has a Mask entry in the Access Control List Permissions scrolling list with the value rw (read, write).

If Carla also adds an optional ACL of type Default User (Default Group) for the Project1 folder, then any file or folder subsequently placed in Project1 will inherit an ACL of type User (Group).
