    Default Reshare a shared folder?

    We have several resources that a group of users want to manager.

    I thought I'd create a shared folder /shared in accountA and share it with the group of users.

    Then I would create mounts in that shared folder for the resources: /shared/resourceA, /shared/resourceB etc.

    The resources grants have been set to rwidxap for the group on /

    But now only accountA has full access to the resources folders (email, calendar). The other accounts in the group only see the mountpoints but no subfolders.

    Is it not possible to reshare shared folders?

    Do we have to mount the folders in every single account?

    never tried this but thinking it through i would expect this not to work. if i share my folder with someone i wouldn't really want them sharing it with someone else without my permission.

    The resource has sharing grants for the receiving group set, so there should be no unintended access involved.

    I just want to have an easy setup (from the admin perspective) where I mount several resource accounts under one shared folder to be viewable by the members of the group.

    If that's not possible I'd have to hack a script that mounts all resource accounts into the personal folders of the group members.

    I am thinking about the folder mounts in Zimbra like symlinks in the file system, but there may be too many technical differences.

    Something like:

    /home/resourceA
    /home/resourceB

    /home/accountA/shared
    /home/accountA/shared/resourceA -> /home/resourceA
    /home/accountA/shared/resourceB -> /home/resourceB

    /home/accountB/shared -> /home/accountA/shared

    accountA is now able to see /home/resourceA/Calendar via /home/accountA/shared/resourceA/Calendar, but accountB does not see it via /home/accountB/shared/resourceA/Calendar, accountB only sees /home/accountB/shared/resourceA and /home/accountB/shared/resourceB but no folders below.

    /home/resourceA and /home/resourceB have rwidxap granted to the group accountA and accountB are in. /home/accountA/shared has an r grant for the group.
