Thanks for the response. That's pretty much what I had planned to do as a
workaround. But it certainly seems backwards. The *OBJEXIST, *OBJMGT, etc.
authorities are more IBM I specific whereas the *RWX authority is more
universal to other systems.

Hello Michael,

I think I've done this before, but I'm at a loss as to how to set the
DTAAUT authority for a folder I'm creating with the mkdir() API. I can
easily set the object authorities, but without data authorities the
new folder is worthless.

Seems you need to call CHGAUT after creation separately. mkdir() comes
from UNIX and UNIX doesn't know about the special authorities from IBM i.
