How do I get rid of ACLs on my UNIX only folders?

Jump to solution

I ran ls -al and found that a folder that I planned to use for UNIX / NFS only  has an ACL with Windows ACEs for Active Directory groups.  How do I get rid of them?

A special flag on the chmod command from a node in the Isilon cluster will allow you to remove Windows ACLs and replace them with POSIX bits.

for example: 

chmod -b -R 744 /ifs/data/newNFSfolder

Will erase the ACL (that's the -b flag) and replace with 744 as the POSIX mode bits. (-R is recursive and will execute the command down the directory tree)

This should clean up any inadvertent ACLs that exist out there in your UNIX only folders.
