Software Development Kit (SDK) and API Discussions

NMSDK 9.7 file-list-directory-iter output always returns acl-type of "unknown"


I've tested this call against several filesystems on cDOT OnTAP 9.6P2 volumes using SDK 9.5, 9.6 and 9.7 since I still had all 3 "laying around". By default we use 9.7.


The acl-type field returned for previous OnTAP and SDK versions used to return the ACL type of each file and directory encountered, almost always returning "nt_acl" or "nfs_acl". It now returns "unknown" for all objects.


I haven't used the call for some time, and I'd have a pretty hard time determining the version of either that actually worked. Sory about that, I wish that I had more detail on when it broke. I suspect that the issue is with OnTAP, not with the SDK.





what do you see when running: the following via CLI?

vserver security file-directory show -vserver vs1 -path /vol_name/folder/folder/file


unknown dosen't seems good - i assume this is taken from the official documentation .....
