On centos 7.5 I have mounted NFS share(from isilon server) via autofs service. Now when I run

setfacl -d -m g::rwx /path/to/share/location

it gives error

setfacl: /path/to/share/location Operation not supported

Does the autofs support the posix ACL or not? Note: on local path same command works fine.


Assuming you are using an NFS mount from an NFSv4 server that supports ACLs, you will need to use the nfs4_setfacl command to set acls. The syntax isn’t quite the same.

  • There isn’t a standard for posix ACLs on nfsv3, and I believe it depends on the implementation, requiring a separate RPC daemon. – jsbillings Jan 19 at 23:14
