Kevin,

Which file system are you working in? This is starting to sound familiar to
me. I'm working in a folder off of the Root directory in the IFS. I kind of
recall different behavior in different file systems--but I could be
mistaken.

I would agree it seems off from the documentation because the flags that add
up to the mode are for (R)ead, (W)rite, and e(X)ecute. I don't see how that
can translate to *OBJEXIST, etc. So I've been sitting here at my desk
pondering what's happening. I think it's time for a PMR (or rather a case or
ticket or whatever it's called these days). I'll post an update when I get
IBM's take on this.

Thanks,
Michael Quigley

That is backwards of what I'm seeing, and backwards of what is documented.
Object authority is inherited from the parent directory for me, and when I
make changes to flags I'm passing to the mode, my data authorities change.

Kevin,

Thanks, but that's pretty much what my code does and only the DTAAUT is
not set--only the OBJAUT.

Setting the mode works fine for me. This is a snippet from some old
code, but it works for me.
c Eval Mode = S_Irusr + S_Iwusr
C + S_Irwxo
C If Mkdir(%addr(@Path):Mode) < 0
C Callp DspError('Makedir')
C Endif

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.



Thanks,

Michael Quigley
