I have been asked to enable the following kernel option: SetUID/SetGID - Allow directories to inherit their owner from the parent directory.
The generic kernel under FreeBSD6.3 is what we presently use on the system in question and I see no commented-out option for compilation. We see in the fstab the following: # Device Mountpoint FStype Options Dump Pass# #Default is for no SUIDDIR. #/dev/mfid0s1a / ufs rw 1 1 #Living a bit more dangerously, we turned it back on. /dev/mfid0s1a / ufs rw,SUIDDIR 1 1 This looks like it may address the issue, but a test shows that it does not appear to happen. Where do I use this option? This seems to be my day for asking strange questions but I have run up against a couple of things that are not in my usual sphere of knowledge and nothing jumped out at me from documentation.
