Whenever I create new directories in my home (or its subdirectories) they do not have write permission, even though umask is set correctly. Files I make DO have write permission.
[mmanary@seqap33 ~]$ umask 0002 [mmanary@seqap33 ~]$ mkdir testDir [mmanary@seqap33 ~]$ touch testFile [mmanary@seqap33 ~]$ ls -l dr-xr-x--- 2 mmanary mmanary 0 Apr 15 10:25 testDir -rw-rw-r-- 1 mmanary mmanary 0 Apr 15 10:26 testFile
If I switch to a shared group storage directory, then new directories DO have write permission. I can switch them with chmod easily, BUT when using tar, the new directory cannot be written in to so the tar fails with "Permission Denied". Any help is appreciated.
Edit: I have read other suggested questions, but not seem to apply directly because they involve more complicated cases (other users involved). In case this helps:
[mmanary@seqap33 ~]$ getfacl . # file: . # owner: mmanary # group: mmanary user::rwx group::r-x other::---
Edit2: On advice from comments, my filesystem is NFS
