Linux Collaborative Directories



Linux Collaborative Directories

 Question : The Nautilus team doesn't want its data to be accessed by any of the other groups/teams due to security reasons and want their data to be strictly accessed by the devops group of the team.

Setup a collaborative directory /devops/data on Nautilus App 1 server in Stratos Datacenter.

The directory should be group owned by the group devops and the group should own the files inside the directory. The directory should be read/write/execute to the group owners, and others should not have any access.

Please Note :-  Perform the below commands based on your question  server,  user name & other details might differ . 
So please read task carefully before executing. 
All the Best 👍

 We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System

Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

     #1) Respect the privacy of others.

    #2) Think before you type.

    #3) With great power comes great responsibility.
