Description Alain Chassot 2006-02-14 06:52:14 UTC
Samba 3.0.21b does not honnor unix ACLs correctly

On the unix server, we have:
getfacl Test.txt

# file: Test.txt
# owner: root
# group: root
group::r-x		#effective:r-x
group:sysadmin:rwx		#effective:rwx

Members of group sysadmin are not able to modifiy this file Test.txt with the latest version of Samba (3.0.21b). 
It works well with version 3.0.20b so we'll keep this old version on our servers
Users are connecting from WinXP machines

I hope you can fix this in the next version(s)

It's more likely a read only attribute issue.  See the 'map read only' 
option in the smb.conf man page andlet me know if that helps.

It semms it was not a bug, but a feature...

I've also added an "map read only = permissions" to the smb.conf file and it all works perfectly now

Thank you for the quick answer
