this directory has permissions 750 and is owned by user1 and group user1 I have an admin user that is primarily a part of group admin, but also a part of group user1 what would stop admin from having read and execute permissions on this directory? I'm running clamav and have a clamd daemon running as user admin (I could run it as any user, and I may make a special user later, but I don't want to run it as user1, user2, etc).

I have 2 (technically lots more, but let's just say 2 for now) users, user1 and user2 that have home directories /home/user1 and /home/user2. each is owned and group owned by user1:user1 and user2:user2 respectively with permissions of 750. my admin user is part of groups admin, user1, and user2 I need this to be able to scan my user's directories using the command (is this correct?):
clamdscan --move=/files/quarantine/ --config-file=/etc/clamd.d/adm.conf /home/user1/file
doing this gives the error:
/home/user1/file: lstat() failed. ERROR
If I change the directory permissions to 755, it works fine.Or if I leave the permissions 750 and change the directory group ownership to admin, it works fine. So, why would this be? Obviously it is a permissions issue, but why is it not reading admin as part of the user1 group and allowing the same permissions as it does when making the directory group-owned by admin?
