We encountered an unexpected problem when trying to give a file
from one user to another. After failing with plain Solaris 8, we
have set rstchown to 0 in /etc/system, and transferring files to
another user work as expected when doing this on files automounted
from the local host. But it still does not work on files on a
(remote) NFS-mounted filesystem, in spite of having it mounted rw,suid.
Of course granting user has write permission in directory, owns the
file, and target user has the same group as granting user, and has
also write permission (even group write permission is on). None can
chown, as if the POSIX parameter was not set at all.
Is there another parameter to set ? Is this completely forbidden ?
Any idea to trick out chown to get that working ?
(Yes, we know that this is considered to be insecure, but we need it,
and we are behind several firewalls)
Thanks for any help !
