setfacl: test: Operation not supported


I am trying to fine tune some file permeation using acl, but I keep getting this error:
setfacl -m u:alex:r test
setfacl: test: Operation not supported

I check my kernel under file system,, and is supposed to have acl enable. It says ACL support "y" Any idea gurus out there?

Hello. I was browsing the 0 replies thread and though I might give this a go. If you are absolutely certain that you have complied ACLs into your kernel and are still getting this error:

setfacl: test: Operation not supported

then check your /etc/fstab. For ACLs to work you have to mount whatever partition you want with the option acl. As an example, notice /home:

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
LABEL=/home /home ext3 rw,acl 1 2

I hope this helps, that is if you haven't already solved this. Good luck.

That didn't work for me, I'm using FC5, kernel: 2.6.17-1.2157_FC5
but I did the following:
#yum install acl

then I made the /etc/fstab:
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults,acl 0 2

And restarted ... everything is working ok now.
wish this help

setfacl: vol6: Operation not supported

Hello,

before posting this I tried the hints given above.
Here comes the problem:
Code:
sv115n:/daten # setfacl --test -m g:admins:rwx vol6
vol6: u::rwx,g::r-x,g:admins:rwx,m::rwx,o::r-x,*
works fine. But
Code:
sv115n:/daten # setfacl -m g:admins:rwx vol6
setfacl: vol6: Operation not supported
fails.
The partition /dev/sda6 is located in an extended partition /dev/sda3 .
Machine is running under SLES10 with Kernel 2.6.16.21-0.8-smp .
The snapshot from fstab:
Code:
/dev/sda10           /daten/vol6/         reiserfs   acl,user_xattr        1 2
The snapshot from partition table:
Code:
   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1               1         523     4200966   82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda2   *         524        3134    20972857+  83  Linux
/dev/sda3            3135       35642   261120510    f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5            3135        7834    37752718+  83  Linux
/dev/sda6            7835        8879     8393931   83  Linux
/dev/sda7            8880        9402     4200966   83  Linux

Verify you have the acl package installed:

for redhat:
Code:
rpm -q acl
Verify that the fs has acl in fstab. for instance:
Code:
LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults,acl    1 1
Remount the filesystem:
Code:
mount -o remount /
Check to make sure that it IS mounted with acl:
Code:
mount | grep acl
/dev/sda2 on / type ext3 (rw,acl)
Try the test again!

All i had to do is add in fstab "acl" and remount /
Cheers!
