I have 2 users :

  • userA
  • userB

both in the group :

  • studio

They are using the same shared folder workdir

if userA creates a new folder inside workdir, it looks like :

drwxr-sr-x+  2 userA studio 4096 Feb 22 14:20 newFolder

Then userB doesn't have write permissions to this newly created folder.

What can I must do to force create new folder with group write permissions, to achieve this :

drwxrwsr-x+  2 userA studio 4096 Feb 22 14:20 newFolder

Try to add in /etc/afp.conf in the volume section:

directory perm = 0770

Then restart netatalk service and test.
