I think your "Append a Host to an Existing ACL" example is wrong.
The documentation says: APPEND_HOST_ACL Procedure - Appends access control entries (ACE) of an access control list (ACL) to the ACL of a network host.
In your example the call to append_host_acls creates a new ACL and appends the host ACE from the 1st ACL to the new one.
"Notice how both hosts use the same ACL" - wrong.-Mor
Yes. The ACL names were so similar I thought they were the same. :) I've altered the text.
Mor said...The copying of the ACL based on another using APPEND_HOST_ACL is kind of a side effect of the procedure, I think the real purpose is to append an existing ACL onto another existing ACL.
But for the sake of the example you already had in the post the new text is appropriate.
the 400 char limit on the comments is... very limiting :)
The 400 char limit is intentional as these comments are not a great way to communicate. Better to email tim(at)oracle-base.com.
I don't think your comment is correct. I've been looking at this and I can't see any link between ACLs. I think the APPEND_HOST_ACL procedure is badly named, but the description is reasonably accurate. It appends (copies) the ACEs from the specified ACL on to the new ACL, leaving the same privileges, but for the new ACL.
Patrick Jolliffe said...Tiny typo, the index entry is correct but the section heading is wrong.
"Append an Access Control List (ACE)" should be "Append an Access Control Entry (ACE)"
I only find these typos because I rely on your site so much :)
No worries. It's good you spot them. :) I've fixed it now.
