We can run
setfacl -m g:managers:rwx /opt/collabto allow the
managersgroup access to the directory.
Remove Adam's Access to the /opt/collab Directory
Since we can't remove him from the group, we can use ACLs to remove an individual user's access.
We can run
setfacl -m u:adam:0 /opt/collaband it will make sure that
adamcannot access the directory.
