setfacl on a nfs mounted share
My Linux RHEL 5 workstation is tied up at the momment but I was having problems with using setfacl on a nfs mounted share. Later I read if I type:
setfacl -m d:g:groupA: rwx /path/to/folder

Will the above work? Can you use setfacl on a nfs share?

A million thanks in advance,
Johnny Mac

By default, if the file system being exported by an NFS server supports ACLs and the NFS client can read ACLs, ACLs are utilized by the client system.

Both systems are able to utlize the setfacl utility on there respective local systems. When I use setfacl on the NFS share mount, regardless if it's the client or server, the response is "Operation not Supported".

Any thoughts?

Take care,

Can you check the nfs version at both ends?
