User and Groups Service Access
« on: October 29, 2016, 04:36:15 PM »
Followed along in the Groups and Users chapters. Made groups first, and set access appropriately. Then created users, and added users back to groups, and the access controls were all off.

1 - creating a new user seemed to give them access to everything.
2 - new users became part of the Workgroup, which also had access to everything.

So, I removed all access from the Workgroup and access from each individual user in order that the Group's access would work.

Seems like a very backhanded way of doing things. Isn't there a better way?

That is sounding a little backwards.  Are you on Sierra?  I am behind on my investigation with Sierra but I know a number of things have changed.

If I follow, you are defining groups and then setting SACLs on the groups.  Once this is done, you are creating users and adding them to the groups.  Is it the Workgroup group that is causing the issue or are you seeing the group flipping SACLs?
