In many environments, inheritable NFSv4 Access Control Entries (ACEs)
can be rendered ineffective by the application of the per-process
file mode creation mask (umask). This can be addressed by
transmitting the umask and create mode as separate pieces of data,
allowing the server to make more intelligent decisions about the
permissions to set on new files. This document proposes a protocol
extension to accomplish that.
This document is a product of the Network File System Version 4 Working Group of the IETF.
This is now a Proposed Standard.
