NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

       smbcacls {//server/share} {filename} [-D acls] [-M acls] [-a acls]
        [-S acls] [-C name] [-G name] [--numeric] [-t] [-U username] [-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
           "DOMAIN\username%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.

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

           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 log
           level parameter in the smb.conf file.

       -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.

       -l|--log-basename=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 ALLOWED or DENIED to allow/deny 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.
