I thought that perhaps a workaround would be to changed the owner so I tested.

I did a test on the directory where I had trouble. I did something like

  (set-file-modes "serv2" ?\654)

CACLS still reports the same ACL entries.

I thought that maybe was because the owner is the group
Administrators. However changing the owner to me and trying
set-file-modes again gave the same result.

Am I perhaps not using set-file-modes correctly? (I get no errors.)
