in fact is was easier:
In what sense are you using the phrase 'way easier' in the first
sentence? The rest of your stuff goes right over the head of this
part of the target audience!
Nooooo. It's way easier. If an application uses stat() and
checks the uid against the posix permission bits, it fails
since your uid is definitely not the uid of the admins group.
<snip rest of highly techie explanation>
- the perl script checked the permission - what went wrong since NT ACLs
are much more complicated than unix RWX-stuff
- bash does not use any test - it just opens/runs the file to check if
it has access.
but: shouldn't there be a better conversion of NT-ACLs to unix-perms?
perhaps a POSIX-ACL implementation?
