NAME

       dpns-chown - change owner and group of a DPNS directory/file in the name server

SYNOPSIS

       dpns-chown [-h] [-R] owner[:group] path...

       dpns-chown [-h] [-R] :group path...

DESCRIPTION

       dpns-chown  sets the owner and/or the group of a DPNS directory/file in the name server to
       the values in owner and group respectively.

       To change the owner ID, if the group ID does not change and if  the  caller  and  the  new
       owner  ID  belong  to that group, GRP_ADMIN privilege is needed, otherwise the caller must
       have ADMIN privilege in the Cupv database.  To change the group ID, the effective user  ID
       of  the  process must match the owner ID of the file and the new group must be in the list
       of groups the caller belong to or the  caller  must  have  ADMIN  privilege  in  the  Cupv
       database.

       owner  is either a valid username or a valid numeric ID.

       group  is either a valid group name or a valid numeric ID.

       path   specifies  the DPNS pathname.  If path does not start with /, it is prefixed by the
              content of the DPNS_HOME environment variable.

OPTIONS

       The following options are supported:

       -h     If path is a symbolic link, changes the ownership of the link itself.

       -R     Recursive mode.

EXIT STATUS

       This program returns 0 if the operation was successful or >0 if the operation failed.
