SAMBA permissions

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – I have a fileserver running openSUSE 11.2 and samba services for file access from MS Windows based workstations. My question relates to changing default permissions on files and directories created from the windows clients. Following are extracts of the /etc/samba/smb.conf file : [myshare] create mask = 0770 directory mask = 0770 inherit acls = yes Even with the above entries, sometimes there are files and directories created by the windows clients having permission drwxr-x--- (for directories) drwxrw---- (for files) Probably my lack of understanding in ACLS. Can anyone help ? (Distributions)
