I'm trying to setup a folder so that users can only create or modify files/folders in it, but not delete them. I tried the 'chattr +a' command and got different results in RHEL5.8 and RHEL6.5 respectively. I tried the following command:
# chattr +a /home/share
In RHEL5.8, the 'append' attribute is automatically set for newly created files/folders under /home/share folder, which is what I want. But it is not the case in RHEL6.5, that cause users can still remove files/folders under sub-folfers of /home/share. For example:
$ mkdir /home/share/test-folder $ touch /home/share/test-folder/test-file $ rm /home/share/test-folder/test-file
The file 'test-file' still can be removed.
So my question is, in RHEL6.5, how can I get the same result as what I got in RHEL5.8? or is there other solutions?
