Hopefully someone has a quick answer to this one, as it has become a stumper
A bit of background:
We are in the process of moving all our *nix boxes to nis as a stop gap
measure untill our aix systems can handle that new fangled ldap thing.
We are also implementing comon home directories on a linux instance on 390.
My problem is that some of our people work on *sensitive* material and store
it in their home directories.
I have restricted access to the nfs server, and set all home directories to
700, but I have some *un-cooperative* admins who keep doing:
chmod 775 <MyHomeDir>
On the server we are exporting /home with (rw,root_squash,sync), and this
previous action leaves that users home dir readable by anyone. This is
Can anyone give me a quick idea on how to Prevent the chmod? I can't just
take away chmod, as its needed for legitimate purposes. SELinux is out, (no
one wants to open that can of worms yet).....
