I'm trying to learn the Sun system of roles, privileges, authorizations, and I think a bunch of other stuff my mind is blown for tonight just trying to figure out their
ACL implementation, if you can call it that.

I have been working on these ACLs now. So, I did some hands on with the commands and a little bit of understanding of using the ACLs in my project.

We can find the man page as I find it more helpful here :

Finally, got stuck at inheriting the ACLs when we copy the files from some one location to the other directory where we had set the permission to a and shared with some one.

lets say:
ACCOUNT creates Directory1 and Directory2. Sets permissions to only allow ACCOUNT and USER access, with inheritance only on Directory 1. ACCOUNT copies file from Directory2 into Directory1.


Only ACCOUNT and USER should have access to directory & files in Directory1, the file shall receive new permissions from Directory1. Others get permission denied.

tried with:

chmod  A=user:ACC123:rwxaAcCpdDRWo:fd:allow,user:USR123:rwxaAcCpdDRWo:fd:allow,owner\@:rwxaAcCpdDRWo:fd:allow,everyone\@:rwxaAcCpdDRWo:fd:deny DIR1
So, when I copy a file from "out side the DIR1" to "DIR1", my expectation was that the copied file should inherit the exact permissions of DIR1. But, when I see permissions of the created file inside the DIR1 and copied file permissions are little different.

How can we make the copied file inherit the exact permissions ?

Now, I understand that the main source to understand the ACL`s is the manual page for "chmod".
