I have five Macs, one G4 and 4 - G5's. G5s are running Snow Leopard 10.6.8.


Five graphic designers, who back up their work on a Mac XServer 10.6.6


Permissions on the designer's Macs are set to read/write for everyone.


Designer A backs up his job to the XServer, then Designer B needs to edit it, so she attempts to pull it off the XServer.


Permission denied for only some of the files, not all.


I guess I need some guidance on the proper way to administer the ACL on the Xserve.


I have set up an ACL group on the server. The strange thing is, there are 2 sets of permissions showing, one seems normal, but the other is labeled "Custom".


Is there any way I can log in as something other than the Administrator, and "wipe out" the custom permissions?


I usually do not mess around in the Terminal.


Thank you for any insights...

Xserve, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
