new directory - how to force files created in it to inherit grp,own and permissions

Hi, I'm new to unix -solaris.

I've just upgraded a third party software product and am testing
it to see if new files created in a test database directory were being created properly and they aren't. They're owned by the user that created the file, instead of poppa and the group of their files is not always momma - see below..

I created a directory and set owner, group and permissions on it as follows :

mkdir /tempdb
chown poppa tempdb
chgrp momma tempdb
chmod 660 tempdb

My question is - how do I force files created in this directory to inherit the owner and group and permissions of the directory itself ?

All users with access to log in to this sun box will need to share these files.

Thanks in advance if anyone can help me.
Is it umask I need or setacl ?
I've read the umask man page but it's a bit confusing.

NAME
mkdir - create a directory SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/stat.h> #include <sys/types.h> int mkdir(const char *pathname, mode_t mode); DESCRIPTION
mkdir attempts to create a directory named pathname. mode specifies the permissions to use. It is modified by the process's umask in the usual way: the permissions of the created file are (mode & ~umask). The newly created directory will be owned by the effective uid of the process. If the directory containing the file has the set group id bit set, or if the filesystem is mounted with BSD group semantics, the new directory will inherit the group ownership from its parent; oth- erwise it will be owned by the effective gid of the process. If the parent directory has the set group id bit set then so will the newly created directory. RETURN VALUE
mkdir returns zero on success, or -1 if an error occurred (in which case, errno is set appropriately). ERRORS
EPERM The filesystem containing pathname does not support the creation of directories. EEXIST pathname already exists (not necessarily as a directory). This includes the case where pathname is a symbolic link, dangling or not. EFAULT pathname points outside your accessible address space. EACCES The parent directory does not allow write permission to the process, or one of the directories in pathname did not allow search (execute) permission. ENAMETOOLONG pathname was too long. ENOENT A directory component in pathname does not exist or is a dangling symbolic link. ENOTDIR A component used as a directory in pathname is not, in fact, a directory. ENOMEM Insufficient kernel memory was available. EROFS pathname refers to a file on a read-only filesystem. ELOOP Too many symbolic links were encountered in resolving pathname. ENOSPC The device containing pathname has no room for the new directory. ENOSPC The new directory cannot be created because the user's disk quota is exhausted. CONFORMING TO
SVr4, POSIX, BSD, SYSV, X/OPEN. SVr4 documents additional EIO, EMULTIHOP and ENOLINK error conditions; POSIX.1 omits ELOOP. There are many infelicities in the protocol underlying NFS. Some of these affect mkdir. SEE ALSO
