    # owner: antony
    # group: antony
    user::rw-
    group::rw-
    other::r--
  • View the default ACLs of a directory using the following command:
    # getfacl directory name
    For example, to view the existing ACLs for /data/doc
    # getfacl /mnt/gluster/data/doc
    # owner: antony
    # group: antony
    user::rw-
