If you’re the root user, you can change the UID and GID for an existing item. If you’re the user identified by the UID value for an item or the root user, you can change the permissions for an item. You can make these changes through the CIFS and NFS protocols.

  • The namespace can be configured to disallow POSIX ownership and permission changes for objects that are under retention.
  • If an object has an HCP-specific object owner, you cannot change the UID and GID values for the object.

To change POSIX ownership and permissions through CIFS or NFS, you use the standard technique for that protocol.
