When setting ACL permissions such as

sudo setfacl -Rdm g:shared_group:rwx  /mnt/shared_resource

do the permissions of shared_group extent to every type of file (directory, symlink, regular file, fifo, socket, etc) without file type differentiation ? Is there a way to set ACL for shared_group such that directories inherit one set of permissions, but regular files (or at least everything non-directory) - different set of permissions ?

  • @Christopher So in other words, depending on the mask, directories and files do in fact get different permissions, right ? That's essentially the answer I was seeking, but could you maybe post an answer instead of a comment to go into details ? Like, why exactly files will get rw- instead of rwx ? – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Feb 3 at 22:51
