Symptoms

Problem Description: Unable to set Root Directory ACL for a share via the CLI

System: Sun ZFS Storage 7x20 Systems and Sun Storage 7x10 Unified Storage Systems

Symptoms:
-> In BUI, when creating a new share (under the menu Shares -> create Filesystem), there is an option for the "Permissions" field to set Windows default permissions.

If "Use Windows default permissions" is selected, the Permissions section is greyed out and the permissions are automatically set to:
  RWX (Read, Write, Execute) for user
  RX (Read, Execute) for group
  RX (Read, Execute) for others
  #### See the attachment Share_BUI_Windows_default.jpg

  Windows Default Permissions can be checked in BUI, under the menu Shares -> select share -> Access Tab -> Root Directory ACL
  #### See the attachment Share_BUI_Root_Directory_ACL.jpg


-> In CLI, when creating a new share, there is no "Windows default permissions" option. However, there is an option that can grant the same privileges, this is root_permissions.
  The equivalent of the "Windows Default Permissions" is 755 - RWX (Read, Write, Execute) for user, RX (Read, Execute) for group and RX (Read, Execute) for others


So we have a difference between the BUI creation and the root_permissions 755 from CLI:

The fact that the owner has different access privileges and the ACL behavior on mode change
