xenstore-chmod - set the permissions of a Xenstore key


xenstore-chmod [OPTION]... [KEY] [PERM]...


Sets the permissions of the Xenstore KEY.

PERM has the format LD, where L is a letter for the type of permission and D is the corresponding domain ID.

The types of permission are:

read and write (both)
no access

The first permission entry is the domain owning the key (the owner) and the permissions for any domain not explicitly listed in subsequent entries. The key owner always has full access (read, write, and set permissions).

Apply the permissions to the key and all its children.
Connect to the Xenstore daemon using a local socket only.
Apply the permissions to the key and all its parents.
