getcifsacl - Userspace helper to display an ACL in a security descriptor for Common Internet File System (CIFS)
This tool is part of the cifs-utils suite.
getcifsacl is a userspace helper program for the Linux CIFS client file system. It is intended to display a security descriptor including ACL for a file system object.
This program uses a plugin to handle the mapping of SIDs to user and group names. /etc/cifs-utils/idmap-plugin should be a symlink that points to the correct plugin to use.
Fields of an ACE such as SID, type, flags, and mask are displayed separated by /. Numeric values of type, flags, and mask are displayed in hexadecimal format.
Kernel support for getcifsacl/setcifsacl utilities was initially introduced in the 2.6.37 kernel.
Shirish Pargaonkar wrote the getcifsacl program.
The Linux CIFS Mailing list is the preferred place to ask questions regarding these programs.
