Directory creation doesn't respect aspera.conf directory_create_mode


When creating a directory using an Aspera client or SDK, the directory creation directives are not respected.

aspera.conf has several directives governing directory and file creation on Unix systems (Linux, Solaris, BSD, etc.):

  • directory_create_mode
  • directory_create_grant_mask
  • file_create_mode
  • file_create_grant_mask

The directory_create_mode functionality works correctly in transfer servers version 2.7 but is broken in versions 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2.


  • Product: Enterprise Server, Connect Server, Point to Point
  • Versions: 3.0, 3.1, 3.2
  • Operating System: Linux, Solaris, BSD, Mac OS X


The work around is to install a prior version ascmd binary (attached) or upgrade to a transfer version 3.3 or later.
