Maintaining consistent group permissions

Maintaining consistent group permissions

To maintain consistent group permissions in diretcories, set the group set-uid bit on a directory. For example...

if you have a directory such as:

drwxrwxr-x ken admins test1

And you execute the command: # chmod g+s test1

Then the directory will look like:

drwxrwsr-x ken admins test1

And all files created in the directory will have a group of admins.
