Description Chan Kwun Hok 2001-05-26 05:28:12 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (Win98; U)

Description of problem:
I've set up MARS successfully and is already running with another Netware 3.12 server in the network. However there is a very serious  problem 
on security, when I set trustees in MARS with the DOS command 'grant all to user', it just simply won't apply to that file or directory. When I 
typed tlist, it does shows the rights that I have granted. The directory only follows the chmod rights in Linux.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.in linux, chmod 700 temp directory in SYS:, then login to MARS as supervisor
2.at dos command prompt, change to the server's drive (eg. f:)
3.cd to temp directory in the server. (F:\>cd temp)
4.grant all rights to another user. (F:\TEMP>grant all to user)
5.dos replys, 'TEMP         Rights set to [ RWCEMFA]
6.login as user
7.copy files to temp directory
8.dos returns access denied

Expected Results:  files should be copied to temp directory

Additional info:

I have already changed nwserv.conf file from
1      SYS       /var/mars_nwe/sys      k   711 600
1      SYS       /var/mars_nwe/sys      kt  711 600

Not a security problem as it fails safe. MARS never supported the full range of
Netware fancy security features

WONTFIX because we no longer ship this package and don't consider the bug
important enough to errata for the old 7.0 distribution
