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

       smbcacls {//server/share} {filename} [-D acls] [-M acls] [-a acls]
		[-S acls] [-C name] [-G name] [--numeric] [-t] [-U username]
		[-h] [-d]

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

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

       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 speci‐
	      fied 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 speci‐
	      fied  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 us‐
	      er  is  prompted to enter in a password and the workgroup speci‐
	      fied 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 giv‐
	      en  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.

	      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

	      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-spe‐
	      cific  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.

	      debuglevel 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 crit‐
	      ical  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   pa‐
	      rameter in the smb.conf file.

	      Base  directory  name for log/debug files. The extension ".prog‐
	      name" will be appended (e.g. log.smbclient,  log.smbd,  etc...).
	      The log file is never removed by the client.

       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 direc‐
       tory 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 ei‐
       ther 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_INHERIT_ONLY 0x8

       At present flags can only be specified as decimal or  hexadecimal  val‐

       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

       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 er‐
       ror 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.

       This man page is correct for version 3.0 of the Samba suite.

       The original Samba software and related utilities were created  by  An‐
       drew  Tridgell.	Samba  is  now	developed by the Samba Team as an Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

       smbcacls was written by Andrew Tridgell and Tim Potter.

       The conversion to DocBook for Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter.  The
       conversion  to  DocBook	XML  4.2  for  Samba 3.0 was done by Alexander
