Description Lalatendu Mohanty 2013-08-21 07:52:21 EDT
Description of problem:

We are not able to set deny acls on samba shares. samba shares include rhs volumes, xfs partitions. This might be because deny acls are not supported with samba. However we are not sure about this. So this bug would be used to track this issue. 

If we confirm samba does not support deny acls, we would convert this bug as documentation bug to include the information in rhs documentation.

Comment 2 Christopher R. Hertel 2013-08-21 21:34:44 EDT
The vfs_glusterfs module does not support storage and retrieval of Windows ACLs. Instead, it converts the Windows ACLs into POSIX ACLs (as best as it can) and stores the POSIX ACLs in the file system. This ensures that other applications and access methods are all obeying the same access rules. When Windows asks to read a Security Descriptor (SD), the POSIX ACLs are translated back into Windows format (as best as we can) and the SD is constructed from the result.

POSIX doesn't have a concept of Deny ACLs, so there is no way to retrieve a Deny ACL using this mechanism.

You can use acl_xattr object on top of glusterfs to support NT_ACLs.
But we have not tested its integration throughly yet.
Comment 4 Christopher R. Hertel 2013-08-27 14:17:17 EDT

The solution is to test the addition of the vfs_acl_xattr module above the vfs_glusterfs module in the Samba VFS stack. This stacking should work, but we have not tested it fully to verify it for production use.
Comment 5 Lalatendu Mohanty 2013-09-11 08:44:13 EDT
We should also take this bug as high severity because it is important from Windows security point of view. 

In Windows if a set of permissions given to a to a particular group and we can set deny acl for a for a particular user from the group. While calculating the final permission for the user, deny acl take higher precedence and the deny acl will be applicable for the user.
Comment 6 Christopher R. Hertel 2013-10-02 15:39:49 EDT
This simply requires QE testing with the vfs_acl_xattr module.
