View Full Version : lion permissions not inheriting

Jul 6, 2012, 03:52 AM

Looking for a bit of help with permissions on a lion server.

We have a Transfer folder where files are exchanged on our network.

All staff have the "general" group assaigned to their username.

So on our Transfer folder, the permissions that i've set are

General - Read Write
root - Read Write
staff - Read Write
Others - None

When one user uploads a file its fine, but when another goes to overwrite the file it says they dont have permission.

Looking at the file, the permissions don't revert back to the server. The file ends up with permissions like...

general - read write
(persons username) read write
staff - Read only
Others - Read only

Never used to have this problem with Snow Leopard.
