Contributors

You can configure this option to grant group permissions to access files or directories even if the incoming CIFS user is not the owner of the file.

Steps
  1. Set the privilege level to advanced: set -privilege advanced

  2. Configure the grant UNIX group permission as appropriate:

    If you want to Enter the command

    Enable the access to the files or directories to get group permissions even if the user is not the owner of the file

    vserver cifs options modify –grant-unix-group-perms-to-others true

    Disable the access to the files or directories to get group permissions even if the user is not the owner of the file

    vserver cifs options modify –grant-unix-group-perms-to-others false

  3. Verify that the option is set to the desired value: vserver cifs options show –fields grant-unix-group-perms-to-others

  4. Return to the admin privilege level: set -privilege admin
