Saving ACL's defined to a filesystem

Hi .. Using Netbackup 5.1 and VxFS V4. Some of our users have defined ACL's which seem not to get restored when we tested out Recovery process. Is there a way to collect all the ACL's that are defined (via getacl) and restore (via a setacl)

Thanks

Re: Saving ACL's defined to a filesystem

Have you contacted Veritas' NetBackup support?

NetBackup advertises that it will preserve ACLs. They'd certainly have a limited audience if they couldn't save and restore ACLs correctly.

Re: Saving ACL's defined to a filesystem

I will contact my backup folks, but I'm curious if there is a good way to save the ACLs defined to all the filesystems into a file ..

$ DIRECTORY/SECURITY/OUTPUT=security.txt ddxn:[*...]

or the programmatic equivalent?

Richard,

We can have ACL in most of the OS inlcuding Alpha OpenVMS, Alpha TU64, HP UX and Veritas's VxFS.
setacl and getacl are looks unix and veritas command. May we know your what is your OS?, isn't Tru64 or HP UX?.

Re: Saving ACL's defined to a filesystem

Sorry .. This is HP/UX 11.0, 11.11 and 11.23. The 11.0 has JFS 3.3 installed which allows the filesystems to be upgraded to vxfs v4 (Which allow ACL's)

Basically, I want to issue a getacl for all ACL's that are set on the system.

Thanks

Richard,

welcome to the OpenVMS ITRC forum.

You will probably get better responses to your question using the HP-UX ITRC forum:
