With "normal" user credentials in tar, this works, as you may just omit the

With ACL fields, you cannot do that as star uses a ACL description that was
derived from an outdated stanndard proposal.
I've tested this some time ago:

star can handle ACLs like




correctly. And all I proposed is to use one of these formats.
So if you like to get the behavior you expect with ACLs, you would need to use
-numeric during an extract operation. As long as just the name data-base on the
system used to extract is missing, star always does what you expect.
But on up to date redhat tar's, this option simply does not work. So it does not help in any way.
