How is accounting mounted? We keep a public history that is actually a mounted dvd and of course it is not changeable.

That directory might also be NFS mounted.

lsattr accounting
This would help to see the permissions.

Hi All

Ultimately it has been found that the folder is shared from netapps through NFS, which doen not allow to se the permissions.


Thanks

More precisely, NFS maps root to a regular user (nobody) which has no specific rights.
