UNIX(set user id) and sgid (set group id) are the equivalent of adopted authority in i5OS. Are represented as an "s" in the executable part. e.g. chmod u+s
UNIXWhen a directory has the sgid mode enabled, any files or directories created in it will inherit the group id of the directory.
UNIXSticky bit is displayed in a long directory listing in the place of the executable flag as "t" for other users (the last character), with the same meaning for upper and lower case as for suid and sgid. If set for a directory, it permits only the owning user or the superuser (root) to delete or unlink a file.
