Subject:   setfacl(1) - Can FreeBSD's ACLs contain groups from NT/AD domains ?
Message-ID:  <>

Hi all,

I have "FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT #1: Wed Jul 25" authenticating successfully against
active directory via samba's winbindd(8). I need to manage samba shares via
FreeBSD ACLs and CIFS ACLs. From my reading of setfacl(1) I should be able to
set group permissions using the syntax of DOMAIN\group-name. For example:

   #setfacl -d -m g:"MYDOMAIN\mygroupname":rwx test

However, when I do this on FreeBSD -CURRENT I get the following error:

   #setfacl -d -m g:"MYDOMAIN\mygroupname":rwx test
    setfacl: g:MYDOMAIN\mygroupname: Invalid argument

>From a quick Google it looks like Linux ACLs can do the aforementioned

Does anyone know ?
