Check out the Knowledge Base article 18314911 at:

It helps explain the IFS security and how it is based on Unix. Notice that how Owner is handled on new objects is different as of V5R2.

I think I have a similar issue.  I have developers that can create directories 
in IFS but if they want to delete them,
they have to change the rights to the directory he/she just created.

I read somewhere that creating any stream file on the IFS exhibits this behavior and it is normal.

In other words, it's not a bug, it's a feature.

Not sure how to get around it... Hopefully, someone else will chime in.....

Subject: IFS object authority


When I create a file or directory in IFS using command CRTDIR or using mapped drive, the object has an full authority for *public: (*PUBLIC *RWX X X X X ).

But my own profile has less authority: (JIN *RWX).

Why is this?

Is there a way to not attach owner JIN to the object when it is created?

Is there a way to give  owner JIN full authority too when the object is
created?

Thanks.

Bruce
