I managed to figure out the problem. In case anyone is interested, I had
not noticed that samba must be configured with --with-acl-support before
being built (don't forget to compile/install the ACL utilities and run
ldconfig so the libacl is available). I would have noticed it quicker if I
hadn't used the pre-built redhat rpm.
So i got the source rpm instead, added the configure option, and rebuilt the
rpm, installed, restarted smb, and it works now.

Subject: ACL half-working on win2k; can't add users
I have a Red Hat 7.2 linux server with an ext3 partition being used as an
ext2 partition. I used the stock 2.4.14 kernel, applied the EA/ACL patches
(acl.bestbits.at), and installed it. I can use getfacl and setfacl to get
and set all the advanced features of ACL.
I have the samba 2.2.1a package that came default with RH 7.2 modified to
act as a PDC.
I have a Windows 2000 workstation logging into the linux server with roaming
profiles and mounting several shares, including the user's home share.
Everything is working well so far. If you right-click on a file and choose
the security tabs, you can see the permissions, and you can even modify the
owner, group, and other permissions (the standard unix permissions) and save
Assume I'm logged in to the windows machine as Joe. Assume there's another
user in the domain named Jane. If I right-click on a file I own and try to
add Jane in the security tab so that I can grant her write privileges on the
file, i get the error message 'Unable to save permission changes'.
So, basically, I can modify standard unix permissions from Windows 2000, but
I can't use the advanced ACL features. Any ideas?
