Thanks for the response.

I tested ACL support on Linux side with setfacl command. I was able to add/modify the ACLs through the command.

Here is the example of getfacl output:
# file: cdx_gfs_cifs1
# owner: dchen
# group: users

as far as I know GFS only supports posix acl. So only user:group:other.
Everything else are extended acl which are not supported.

Have you tested, if the acl rules are working on the unix side ?
