In the event of OCFS2 filesystem issues, such as corruption, the file permissions of OCFS2 files/directories may change. This issue does not usually affect filesystems that support Access Control List (ACL) e.g. the use of getfacl(1) or setfacl(1).

This document provides a script that can used to backup and restore OCFS2 file permissions.
