Hi all, does someone know how to get a folder or file to automatically inherit the server permissions after being copied over?

I have mac os 10.6.8 server, and only macs in the network.


thanks for any tips.

    You must use ACLs.  POSIX inheritance was dropped after 10.4.  If you have a folder with existing content, then after applying the ACLs to the root folder (the shared folder), you must propogate permissions.  This function is available under the Gear icon menu.
