Description SATOH Fumiyasu 2003-10-14 05:38:25 UTC
The smbcacls(1) man page says smbcacls command has '-n' option to displays all
ACL information in numeric format, but smbcacls command ignores it.

$ smbcacls //server/share . -U admin%pass -n

or just use --numeric instead of -n. I think we do not need -n when --numeric
works just as wanted. Man page should be fixed. smbcacls --help tells the
correct options.

I've fixed this in the docs (as proposed by Björn Jacke) 
-n is a common option for specifying our NetBIOS name, so to prevent 
confusion, I prefer not to give it two meanings.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
