Are there any known problems using UFS ACLs under Solaris 2.5.1 (HW8/97)
and are they known to work correctly ....
Kitty and Frank pointed out that they didn't worked out correctly for
Casper said that they should be fine, if you have installed the latest
recommended patches ... although some problems are still there ...

Under Solaris 2.5.1 (HW8/97) and the recommended patches Nov/97 the UFS
ACLs I was able to set up the ACLs working correctly. The problems Frank
mentioned are gone ... I tested serveral different configurations ..
all worked out correctly for me ... beside the umask problem ... but
that's not important in my configuration as I am using samba with
hardcoded umask and filecreation settings in this environment ...
Thanks once again ....
