Hi Rowland,

On HP-UX, only ‘Posix ACL’ is supported. We don’t support “windows/Extended
ACLs” on HP-UX

It seems that Samba’s ADDC works only with Windows ACL’s. I found the
following note


this has clearly mentioned that file sharing on ADDC works only with
Windows ACL’s

*You can check with Rowland below:*

On HP-UX , only ‘Posix ACL’s’ are supported. So, file sharing doesn’t seem
to be working on ADDC as it supports only Windows ACL’s as per

Also, as per below link, it is not recommended to use ADDC as file sharing


So, we will not be using ADDC as file server.

Can you please let us know if there is any other impact due to not
supporting Windows/Extended ACL’s.
