nfs4_setfacl fails on file with numeric name only with error:"No path(s) specified."

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • Command nfs4_setfacl fails on numeric name only file with error: "No path(s) specified."
# nfs4_setfacl -a A::gg@nfsdomain:RWX 456
No path(s) specified.
  • But nfs4_setfacl can succeed on file with alphanumeric and the numeric file plus relative path.
# nfs4_setfacl -a A::gg@nfsdomain:RWX ./456
# nfs4_setfacl -a A::gg@nfsdomain:RWX 456a
