Thanks to Torsten Metzner <firstname.lastname@example.org> for helping me
figure out my problem.
In setting the defaults, I was adding two colons after the default:other
declaration, which causes the operation to fail, but fail quietly.
I was using:
bash# setfacl -m d:u::rwx,d:g::r-x,d:o::r-x,d:m:rwx,d:u:tommy:rwx test
when I should have used:
bash# setfacl -m d:u::rwx,d:g::r-x,d:o:r-x,d:m:rwx,d:u:tommy:rwx test
I also discovered that even root cannot set default ACLs on a directory
owned by another user. I began working on some directories as root, and ran
into a problem with one, where the command complained about being unable to
set the ACL. It was a directory I owned, and when I exited from su status,
I could change it just fine.
I haven't seen this documented in Sun's literature, so here's another
gotcha for any of you working with ACLs under Solaris 2.5.
