File permissions on a Solaris system - using ACl or sticky bit?

I have a problem on my Solaris file server, with UFS file system.

On Solaris, bit 02000 of the file mode determines whether a directory has BSD group ID semantics (when set) or System V semantics (when clear). This is the 'set group ID' bit, and is set by 'chmod g+s ' (and cleared with g-s). BSD semantics is that the group ID for a newly created file in that directory will be that of the directory, rather than the System V version, that of the creating process.
