    fs_copyacl

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           fs copyacl -fromdir <source directory (or DFS file)>
               -todir <destination directory (or DFS file)>+
               [-clear] [-id] [-if] [-help]
    
           fs co -f <source directory (or DFS file)>
               -t <destination directory (or DFS file)>+
               [-c] [-id] [-if] [-h]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The fs copyacl command copies the access control list (ACL) from a
           source directory to each specified destination directory. The source
           directory's ACL is unchanged, and changes to the destination
           directory's ACL obey the following rules:
    
           ?   If an entry on the source ACL does not already exist on the
               destination ACL, it is added.
    
           ?   If an entry exists on both the source and destination ACLs, the
               permissions from the source ACL entry replace the current
               permissions on the destination ACL entry.
    
           ?   If an entry on the destination ACL has no corresponding entry on
               the source ACL, it is removed if the -clear flag is included and is
               unchanged otherwise. In other words, if the -clear flag is
               provided, the source ACL completely replaces the destination ACL.
    
           When using this command to copy ACLs between objects in DFS filespace
           accessed via the AFS/DFS Migration Toolkit Protocol Translator, it is
           possible to specify files, as well as directories, with the -fromdir
           and -todir arguments.
    
    
    

    CAUTIONS

           Do not copy ACLs between AFS and DFS files or directories. The ACL
           formats are incompatible.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -fromdir <source directory>
               Specifies the source directory from which to copy the ACL.
               (Specifying an AFS file copies its directory's ACL, but specifying
               a DFS file copies its own ACL.) A partial pathname is interpreted
               relative to the current working directory.
    
           -todir <destination directory>
               Specifies each directory for which to alter the ACL to match the
               source ACL. (Specifying an AFS file halts the command with an
               error, but specifying a DFS file alters the file's ACL). A partial
               pathname is interpreted relative to the current working directory.
    
               Specify the read/write path to each directory (or DFS file), to
               avoid the failure that results from attempting to change a read-
    
           -if Modifies the Initial Object ACL of each DFS directory named by the
               -todir argument, rather than the regular Object ACL. This argument
               is supported only when both the source and each destination
               directory reside in DFS and are accessed via the AFS/DFS Migration
               Toolkit Protocol Translator.
    
           -help
               Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
               are ignored.
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

           The following example command copies the current working directory's
           ACL to its subdirectory called reports. Note that the source
           directory's ACL is unaffected. Entries on the reports directory's that
           are not on the source ACL of the current directory remain unaffected as
           well, because the -clear flag is not used.
    
              % fs listacl . reports
              Access list for . is
              Normal rights:
                 pat rlidwka
                 smith rlidwk
              Access list for reports is
              Normal rights:
                 pat rl
                 pat:friends rl
              Negative rights
                 jones rlidwka
    
              % fs copyacl -fromdir . -todir reports
    
              % fs listacl . reports
              Access list for . is
              Normal rights:
                 pat rlidwka
                 smith rlidwk
              Access list for reports is
              Normal rights:
                 pat rlidwka
                 pat:friends rl
                 smith rlidwk
              Negative rights
                 jones rlidwka
    
    
    

    PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

           To copy an ACL between AFS objects, the issuer must have the "l"
           (lookup) permission on the source directory's ACL and the "a"
           (administer) permission on each destination directory's ACL. If the
           -fromdir argument names a file rather than a directory, the issuer must
           have both the "l" and "r" (read) permissions on the ACL of the file's
           directory.
