Controlling File Ownership?

» close window

The Question is:

How can we configure an account to automatically take ownership of all files
 written into it by another account?

The Answer is :

  Please review the OpenVMS documentation on Resource Identifiers in the
  OpenVMS documentation set, or operate the username creating the files
  with SYSPRV enabled, or establish a default ACE and a default protection
  ACE on the directory.  Alternatively, establish a service that copies
  the files into the target directory (via installed image or DCL DECnet
  task-to-task, etc), updating the ownership and protection as required.
