Access Deniad to Folder


Hello Guys.

I have folder on file server. Looks like right belongs to root. But when I'm logged in as root I'm getting access denied (perrmisions) when I'm trying open. But I can open this folder when I'm logged in as user. I know it look bit mixed up but maybe ypu have any idea how to get out from this mess.

Many thanks

if you are root on the client and try to access a folder on the server then this might cause problems. as user, however, you may have access permission.

The other thing which is strange. All other folders belongs to group Root but this particular one for some reson belongs to DEAMON. Maybe that is the problem. There is no login for DEAMON

Post output of ls -all when you are logged in as user and are able to access the folder from inside the folder.
