I am trying to get ACL permissions to work the easy way by allowing groups specific access on files and folders. However my system is ignoring group permissions entirely.

My setup: Debian 8
user testuser from an ldap server in local testgroup
Trying to write in folder test

testuser comes from an ldap server

Group membership


Following permissions are set:

testuser@downloader:/storage/Filme/$ getfacl test/
# file: test
# owner: root
# group: users
# flags: -s-

User can display folder contents and read (ie copy files to another folder)
When writing in the folder the user gets a permission denied error.
Once I specifically allow testuser rwx on the directory, the user can write.

Can somebody point me into a direction of what I am missing?
