Someone's got the idea to have one big share with access managed by
directory's sticky bit.
This works perfectly well when normal XP or W2k clients work with their
But: With 'allway sync', an app to synchronize for example between
laptop and fileserver the program is somehow able to circumvent the
sticky bit settings.
A file created locally on the notebook and synced to the server hast the
wrong group rights:
# ls -la
drwxrws--- 2 cmueller sales 4096 5. Feb 15:14 .
drwxrws--- 25 root sales 4096 5. Feb 15:14 ..
-rw-rw---- 1 cmueller awaromgmt 2151561 24. Jan 12:07
# id cmueller
The sticky bit is set but the file belongs to the user's primary group!
A file created in Explorer is fine though...
How is this possible?
