Brad I believe you will find that when a file is created in the IFS the authorities granted to the creator/owner of the new file are the same authority that the owner of the directory has to the directory. Public access also seems to be the same as for the directory. This can lead to some bizarre side effects. Try searching the iSeries technical site for IFS and authority. I found one document that dealt with this after spending quite a few hours searching. Hope this helps. Hope your question gets some more responses - I could do with more information myself. regards Evan Harris >I've been searching the docs and haven't found a definite >answer. > >What determines the stream file authorities (data and >object) of a stream file created by CPYTOSTMF? > >I thought it inheritied from the parent dir, but that >doesn't seem to be the case all of the time.
