If the group should only have read and write shouldn't the command be: chmod 760 /admins

Permissions on the folder works different to that of files. Permissions needed are 2770 with 2760 users member of admin group will not be able to enter the folder.

# Create the directory mkdir /home/admins # Change the owner of the directory to root sudo chown root: /home/admins # Change the group of the directory to admin sudo chgrp admin /home/admins # Set the permissions so that the owner and the group can read and write, # but others cannot access it sudo chmod 770 /home/admins # Set the group ID on the directory so that files created within it # inherit the group of the directory (admin) rather than the group of the user that created the file sudo chmod g+s /home/admins

I passed the RHSCA exam last week. This dump was useful but needs update for questions on writing simple shell scripts, container, Stratis and VDO. Thanks. Also, I think Redhat has increased the number of questions from 20 - 24. Mine were 24 questions on the exam. Thanks. https://medium.com/@darekhale91/latest-redhat-ex200-exam-dumps-2023-acd1c1922729

Without granting x permissions, group users will not be able to access the folder so it should be chmod 770 /home/admins

@cloudyhr Why do you have 2770 instead of just 770? And why is g+s necessary?

I figured out the answer to my second question about g+s. The "s" (special permissions) is necessary so that files _created_ by users from the `admin` group are also _owned_ by the `admin` group.

which is correct permission /home/admin 760 or 770 ?

2770 to be precise. it's because without exec permission, even group users won't be able to enter the dir (i.e. cd requires rx permission).

The right answer is chmod 770 because you need to have execution permission on the directory to have access to its content, so you can perform write and read process.

2770 should be to allow also inheritance for group permissions

For all of the above to work, the user must have the admin group as an additional group. Do the test.

Depends. For directories - r - list files, w - add/del files, x - cd to that directory If yser should be able to enter it this dir should have x
