Description wibrown@redhat.com 2016-05-18 06:23:29 UTC
Description of problem:

Man setfacl states:

       The  perms  field  is  a combination of characters that indicate the permissions: read (r), write (w), execute (x), execute only if the file is a directory or already has execute
       permission for some user (X).  Alternatively, the perms field can be an octal digit (0-7).

This is missing the parameter for perms "-" which means "no permission allowed".
