You can escape spaces in the command line using the back slash. In your case "cyber managers" would look like this:
You could have simply created an "untitled folder" on the desktop, launched terminal and drag dropped the newly created folder into it. Terminal would then list the full path name as well as showing you how it handles spaces.
Hope this helps, Tony
Thanks for the help, but that did not solve the problem. See below:
xserve5:/ admin$ sudo chmod +a "DOMAIN\cyber\ managers allow readsecurity,readattr,readextattr,list,search,read,execute,writeextattr,writeat tr,delete,deletechild,add_file,add_subdirectory,write,append,file_inherit,directoryinherit" /Volumes/SANVol1/Admin
chmod: Unable to translate DOMAIN\cyber\ to a UID/GID: Invalid argument
I've found a few other references to chmod having issues around the space character in its parsing. That this isn't handled correctly appears regrettable.
Here's [another thread|http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=5832951] that references this same issue.
Lob a bug report at Apple, or fix the chmod sources, or remove the spaces, or some combination of these?
