NAME

       fs_copyacl - Copies an ACL from a directory to one or more other directories

SYNOPSIS

       fs copyacl -fromdir <source directory (or DFS file)>
           -todir <destination directory (or DFS file)>+
           [-clear] [-id] [-if] [-help]

       fs co -f <source directory (or DFS file)>
           -t <destination directory (or DFS file)>+
           [-c] [-id] [-if] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The fs copyacl command copies the access control list (ACL) from a source directory to
       each specified destination directory. The source directory's ACL is unchanged, and changes
       to the destination directory's ACL obey the following rules:

       ·   If an entry on the source ACL does not already exist on the destination ACL, it is
           added.

       ·   If an entry exists on both the source and destination ACLs, the permissions from the
           source ACL entry replace the current permissions on the destination ACL entry.

       ·   If an entry on the destination ACL has no corresponding entry on the source ACL, it is
           removed if the -clear flag is included and is unchanged otherwise. In other words, if
           the -clear flag is provided, the source ACL completely replaces the destination ACL.

       When using this command to copy ACLs between objects in DFS filespace accessed via the
       AFS/DFS Migration Toolkit Protocol Translator, it is possible to specify files, as well as
       directories, with the -fromdir and -todir arguments.

CAUTIONS

       Do not copy ACLs between AFS and DFS files or directories. The ACL formats are
       incompatible.

OPTIONS

       -fromdir <source directory>
           Specifies the source directory from which to copy the ACL.  (Specifying an AFS file
           copies its directory's ACL, but specifying a DFS file copies its own ACL.) A partial
           pathname is interpreted relative to the current working directory.

       -todir <destination directory>
           Specifies each directory for which to alter the ACL to match the source ACL.
           (Specifying an AFS file halts the command with an error, but specifying a DFS file
           alters the file's ACL). A partial pathname is interpreted relative to the current
           working directory.

           Specify the read/write path to each directory (or DFS file), to avoid the failure that
           results from attempting to change a read-only volume. By convention, the read/write
           path is indicated by placing a period before the cell name at the pathname's second
           level (for example, "/afs/.example.com"). For further discussion of the concept of
           read/write and read-only paths through the filespace, see the fs mkmount reference
           page.

       -clear
           Replaces the ACL of each destination directory with the source ACL.

       -id Modifies the Initial Container ACL of each DFS directory named by the -todir argument,
           rather than the regular Object ACL. This argument is supported only when both the
           source and each destination directory reside in DFS and are accessed via the AFS/DFS
           Migration Toolkit Protocol Translator.

       -if Modifies the Initial Object ACL of each DFS directory named by the -todir argument,
           rather than the regular Object ACL. This argument is supported only when both the
           source and each destination directory reside in DFS and are accessed via the AFS/DFS
           Migration Toolkit Protocol Translator.

       -help
           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

EXAMPLES

       The following example command copies the current working directory's ACL to its
       subdirectory called reports. Note that the source directory's ACL is unaffected. Entries
       on the reports directory's that are not on the source ACL of the current directory remain
       unaffected as well, because the -clear flag is not used.

          % fs listacl . reports
          Access list for . is
          Normal rights:
             pat rlidwka
             smith rlidwk
          Access list for reports is
          Normal rights:
             pat rl
             pat:friends rl
          Negative rights
             jones rlidwka

          % fs copyacl -fromdir . -todir reports

          % fs listacl . reports
          Access list for . is
          Normal rights:
             pat rlidwka
             smith rlidwk
          Access list for reports is
          Normal rights:
             pat rlidwka
             pat:friends rl
             smith rlidwk
          Negative rights
             jones rlidwka

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

       To copy an ACL between AFS objects, the issuer must have the "l" (lookup) permission on
       the source directory's ACL and the "a" (administer) permission on each destination
       directory's ACL. If the -fromdir argument names a file rather than a directory, the issuer
       must have both the "l" and "r" (read) permissions on the ACL of the file's directory.

       To copy an ACL between DFS objects, the issuer must have the r permission on the source
       directory or file's ACL and the "c" (control) permission on each destination directory or
       file's ACL.
