Oracle HSM (SAM-QFS): 'chmod - R' Does Not Work With NFSv4-style ACLs

(Doc ID 2005790.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 28, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Hierarchical Storage Manager (HSM) and StorageTek QFS Software - Version 5.0 to 6.0 [Release 5.0 to 6.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The 'chmod -R' command does not work when invoked from the SAMFS server:

The 'setfacl' command works but it does not have a recursive option.


The customer is setting NFSv4-style ACLs on directories and files, that reside on a samfs filesystem, that is shared with Windows servers using Samba.
The application moves thousands of files to the Samba share. It creates subfolders and the subfolders need to inherit the permissions from the parent folder.
