In solaris 9 (5.9) I fail to mkdir with user builder, the user exist in the group defined as owner for that path.
bash-2.05$ groups builder other root sys bash-2.05$
and this is the file structure:
bash-2.05$ ls -la / | grep opt lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 16 Apr 14 2008 opt -> /export/home/opt bash-2.05$ bash-2.05$ ls -la /export/home/ | grep opt drwxr-xr-x 13 root other 512 Jan 24 11:49 opt bash-2.05$
builder belong to other group, why does it fail to mkdir in /opt ?
bash-2.05$ pwd /opt bash-2.05$ mkdir dire mkdir: Failed to make directory "dire"; Permission denied bash-2.05$
