    Hi

    I have a Mac OSX Server v 5.1.7. I have a Folder share configured with all the permissions, but only to notice that the permission is not being inherited by other Files. Why would that be?

    Also one of the permissions we have on that share e.g. pwusers, but displays the name as users instead of pwusers on the folder/file, why would that be? how and why would it change the group-name.

    Please advise as to what can be done to resolve the permission issue.

    i have manually created & copied the files over to the location, but still no permission are being inherited like it should.

    Thanks and look forward to hearing from you soon.

    The information on macOS ACL permissions and POSIX permissions is freely available on the internet. This one will take a bit of learning to ensure that you're doing things correctly. I don't work with such things enough to give a precise answer off the top of my head. Good luck!
