Acl issue

team,

I need to give permission for a directory named /oracle for a user informix, need to setacl for informix.

but /oracle dir is owned by oracle:dba,

setacl -m user:informix:rwx /oracle
this is done, fine

but can you explain what will be the use of setting acl on directory level if file means, ok he an edit, execute it. but on directory level what informix user is trying to achive can u explain it?

2.Now inside /oracle if informix user needs to acess all files is there any option for recussive permission to be given on setacl command?

Thanks

If "setacl" does not have a recursive option,
then you might look at "find -exec".

man find
