NAME

       smbcacls - Set or get ACLs on an NT file or directory names

SYNOPSIS

       smbcacls   {//server/share}   {filename}   [-Dacls]  [-Macls]  [-aacls]
        [-Sacls] [-Cname] [-Gname] [--numeric] [-t] [-Uusername] [-h] [-d]

DESCRIPTION

       This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.

       The smbcacls program manipulates NT Access Control Lists (ACLs) on  SMB
       file shares.

OPTIONS

       The following options are available to the smbcacls program. The format
       of ACLs is described in the section ACL FORMAT

       -a acls
          Add the ACLs specified to the  ACL  list.  Existing  access  control
          entries are unchanged.

       -M acls
          Modify  the  mask  value (permissions) for the ACLs specified on the
          command line. An error will be printed for each ACL  specified  that
          was not already present in the ACL list

       -D acls
          Delete  any  ACLs  specified  on  the command line. An error will be
          printed for each ACL specified that was not already present  in  the
          ACL list.

       -S acls
          This  command sets the ACLs on the file with only the ones specified
          on the command line. All other ACLs are erased. Note  that  the  ACL
          specified  must  contain  at least a revision, type, owner and group
          for the call to succeed.

       -U username
          Specifies a username used to connect to the specified  service.  The
          username  may  be  of  the form "username" in which case the user is
          prompted to enter in a password and the workgroup specified  in  the
          smb.conf(5)    file    is    used,    or    "username%password"   or
          "DOMAINsername%password" and the password and  workgroup  names  are
          used as provided.

       -C name
          The  owner  of  a file or directory can be changed to the name given
          using the -C option. The name can be a sid in the form S-1-x-y-z  or
          a  name resolved against the server specified in the first argument.

          This command is a shortcut for -M OWNER:name.

       -G name
          The group owner of a file or directory can be changed  to  the  name
          given  using the -G option. The name can be a sid in the form S-1-x-
          y-z or a name resolved against the  server  specified  n  the  first
          argument.

          This command is a shortcut for -M GROUP:name.

       --numeric
          This  option  displays  all  ACL  information in numeric format. The
          default is to convert SIDs to names and ACE types  and  masks  to  a
          readable string format.

       -t
          Don’t  actually  do  anything,  only validate the correctness of the
          arguments.

       -h|--help
          Print a summary of command line options.

       -V
          Prints the program version number.

       -s <configuration file>
          The file specified contains the configuration  details  required  by
          the  server.  The  information in this file includes server-specific
          information  such  as  what  printcap  file  to  use,  as  well   as
          descriptions  of all the services that the server is to provide. See
          smb.conf for more information. The default configuration  file  name
          is determined at compile time.

       -d|--debuglevel=level
          level  is  an  integer  from  0  to  10.  The  default value if this
          parameter is not specified is zero.

          The higher this value, the more detail will be  logged  to  the  log
          files  about the activities of the server. At level 0, only critical
          errors and serious warnings will be logged. Level 1 is a  reasonable
          level  for  day-to-day  running  -  it  generates  a small amount of
          information about operations carried out.

          Levels above 1 will generate considerable amounts of log  data,  and
          should only be used when investigating a problem. Levels above 3 are
          designed for use only by developers and generate HUGE amounts of log
          data, most of which is extremely cryptic.

          Note that specifying this parameter here will override the

          parameter in the smb.conf file.

       -l|--logfile=logdirectory
          Base  directory  name for log/debug files. The extension ".progname"
          will be appended (e.g. log.smbclient,  log.smbd,  etc...).  The  log
          file is never removed by the client.

ACL FORMAT

       The  format  of  an  ACL is one or more ACL entries separated by either
       commas or newlines. An ACL entry is one of the following:

       REVISION:<revision number>
       OWNER:<sid or name>
       GROUP:<sid or name>
       ACL:<sid or name>:<type>/<flags>/<mask>

       The revision of the ACL specifies the internal Windows NT ACL  revision
       for  the  security descriptor. If not specified it defaults to 1. Using
       values other than 1 may cause strange behaviour.

       The owner and group specify the owner and group sids for the object. If
       a  SID in the format S-1-x-y-z is specified this is used, otherwise the
       name specified is resolved using  the  server  on  which  the  file  or
       directory resides.

       ACLs  specify  permissions  granted  to  the SID. This SID again can be
       specified in S-1-x-y-z format or as a name in which case it is resolved
       against  the  server  on which the file or directory resides. The type,
       flags and mask values determine the type of access granted to the  SID.

       The type can be either 0 or 1 corresponding to ALLOWED or DENIED access
       to the SID. The flags values are  generally  zero  for  file  ACLs  and
       either 9 or 2 for directory ACLs. Some common flags are:

       ·  #define SEC_ACE_FLAG_OBJECT_INHERIT 0x1

       ·  #define SEC_ACE_FLAG_CONTAINER_INHERIT 0x2

       ·  #define SEC_ACE_FLAG_NO_PROPAGATE_INHERIT 0x4

       ·  #define SEC_ACE_FLAG_INHERIT_ONLY 0x8

       At  present  flags  can  only  be  specified  as decimal or hexadecimal
       values.

       The mask is a value which expresses the access  right  granted  to  the
       SID. It can be given as a decimal or hexadecimal value, or by using one
       of the following text strings which map to the NT file  permissions  of
       the same name.

       ·  R - Allow read access

       ·  W - Allow write access

       ·  X - Execute permission on the object

       ·  D - Delete the object

       ·  P - Change permissions

       ·  O - Take ownership

       The following combined permissions can be specified:

       ·  READ - Equivalent to ’RX’ permissions

       ·  CHANGE - Equivalent to ’RXWD’ permissions

       ·  FULL - Equivalent to ’RWXDPO’ permissions

EXIT STATUS

       The  smbcacls  program sets the exit status depending on the success or
       otherwise of the operations performed. The exit status may  be  one  of
       the following values.

       If  the  operation succeeded, smbcacls returns and exit status of 0. If
       smbcacls couldn’t connect to the specified  server,  or  there  was  an
       error  getting or setting the ACLs, an exit status of 1 is returned. If
       there was an error parsing any command line arguments, an  exit  status
       of 2 is returned.
