comment Linux permissions on a remote mount
Saying its meaningless is like saying football teams wearing different coloured shirts is meaningless because some player could put a cloned shirt on. Well, yes, but that possibility doesn't mean coloured shirts has no merit, is not a good idea.

comment Linux permissions on a remote mount
I know how Kerberos works, I worked for Microsoft as a Windows NT engineer. The Authority ID is not "meaningless", it prevents the ID collision issues we're discussing. Finally, its a strange design in that its got issues and no-one decided to improve it. Apple have/are: "OS X has similarly incorporated other technologies from Microsoft's Windows, including support for Windows-style ACLs, a more robust and fine-grained system for implementing file-based permissions that offered a variety of improvements over the existing BSD Unix-style permissions used in prior versions of OS X."

Thanks for the info. FWIW Windows only uses SIDs, the username and password just prove the authorised account holder on login. The username is not stored in ACEs, see technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc961995.aspx Take two cloned Windows PCs, having the same machine SID. From PC1, give Administrator permissions to a file on USB, then place it in PC2 and its Administrator will get access because the SID is the same. I don't understand Linux/Unix at all, but the absence of an authority element looks like a strange design.

So it could show a completely wrong owner if the UID of the real owner matches a UID I have locally? Seriously? Without any data stored for the 'issuing authority' of the UID, how does the server differentiate two local user accounts with the same UID?

comment PowerShell - Changing the PipelineVariable name
Write-Output "Sends the specified objects to the next command in the pipeline" -- easy when you know. Nearest I got was Out-Default. Thanks and I take your point about PipelineVariable it was more a learning exercise than any legit need.

That'll do for me. I have seen other talk of using /opt/company-name/app-name
