modifying directories

As a system administrator I am tasked with setting up directories for the user to be once they have logged in.  After a lot of trial and error I have found where these directories are supposed to be and how the user's account variables (probably wrong terminology) are supposed to be set up.  Now, I have moved the directories and I an now wondering if I can change the UIC setting and ownership settings of these directories after I have created them.  Or do I have to delete them and recreate them.

RE: modifying directories


You can modify the owner of the directories by:

$ set file/owner=whoever directoryname.DIR/log
$ set file/owner=whoever [.directoryname...]*.*;*/log

If you did the move via the BACKUP command, the ownership & UIC should have remained intact (using the /BY_OWNER=ORIGINAL qualifier).

Maybe do a HELP SET SECURITY or HELP SET for further assistance... depends on the architecture & version you are using.
