Failed to set ACL permission on new shared folder



NethServer Version: 6.8
Module: shared folder

To expand the storage space I’ve installed 2 new disks in the server. I’ve created a new raid array (md3) and formatted it. Then I copied the shared folder “docs” to the new disk mounted on /mnt/md3/. Tu use it i’ve done a symbolic link in /var/lib/nethserver/ibay/docs to -> /mnt/md3/ibay/docs. The shared folder work with no problem.
Now i have a problem setting the ACL permission.
I have to set an ACL permission to permit at the apache service to write on this directory.

I’ve used the command:
setfacl -P -R -m u:apache:rwX,d:u:apache:rwX /mnt/md3/ibay/condivisa
but result in no acl permission set.

Output of getfacl:

root@summeet ~]# getfacl /mnt/md3/ibay/docs/
getfacl: Removing leading '/' from absolute path names
# file: mnt/md3/ibay/docs/
# owner: admin
# group: gruppo_doc
# flags: -s-

No change in acl permission.

Any idea of why this happens?

The filesystem of the new disk must support the ACL and mounted accordingly.
Please see


File system is ext4
What means mounted accordingly ?

I’ve add a line in fstab

/dev/md3 /mnt/md3 ext4 defaults,acl 0 0

May be it was not mounted with acl ?


I’ve remounted the file system with the acl option and now is working fine.
On boot the option acl was not loaded.
