Re: Help with ACL and POSIX permissions for external flash/HD.

30.10.2011 23:24, Oleksandr Gavenko ÐÐÑÐÑ:
I have problem with permission (files stand non-readable sometimes) on
host when "rsync" or "hg clone/pull" done on external drive
on another host.

I read
partially understand text but don't know how to resolve
my problem...

From manual:

To use Windows security correctly, Cygwin depends on the files
/etc/passwd and /etc/group

So if I carry external storage from one host to another
does second Cygwin stop understand permission on external storage

I would like to see if all Cygwin operation set 666 permission
for files and 777 for directories for external drive and
don't set any host specific owners so I always can access to files.

It is possible that Cygwin set owners only from well knows SIDs?
Like S-1-1-0 (everyone), S-1-5-32-544 (Administrators)
so this IDs valid on any Windows host.

ïSummarise: We have Cygwin permission model and external storage
that moved from hist place to another (very frequent like any
flash drive...).

$ cd /cygdrive/h
$ umask 0000
$ rsync -av --no-g --no-p --chmod=ugo=rwX --delete ~/tmp/forth/ forth/
$ cd forth/
$ ls -l
-rw-rw-rw- 1 user passwd/group_GID_clash(513/10513) 98575 ÐÑÐ 8 2008 buzzard.2
$ icacls buzzard.2
icacls buzzard.2
buzzard.2 desktop\user:(R,W,D,WDAC,WO)

If I move drive to another host I got:

  permission denied
  invalid descriptor

that come from 'desktop\user' and 'desktop\None'.

Some times I can not ever browse file hierarchy on another host...

But seems that this is Windows 7 problem as same happen
if use Explorer for file coping.

I partially can resolve problem. So I able fix permission but
this take 15 min of script job...

Put 'uac.js' and 'uac.bat' to root of your drive and run 'uac.js'
which ask for admin permission and invoke 'uac.bat' for taking
ownership and granting full access to all:

  $ cat uac.bat
cd %1
takeown /r /f %1
icacls %1 /grant:r *S-1-1-0:(f) /t /c

  $ cat uac.js
var fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
var curdir = fso.GetParentFolderName(WScript.ScriptFullName);
var objShell = new ActiveXObject("shell.application");
objShell.ShellExecute("uac.bat", curdir, "", "runas", 1);

Is it right to update /etc/fstab to:

h: /cygdrive/h ntfs binary,noacl,user 0 0

How can I set umask? In .bashrc? What if I run
Cygwin program from cmd?

This question is open...
