Hi, in provision ' , the permissions for sysvol and the 
policies directory are set to this:


But on this Microsoft webpage:

They are shown as this:



Which would mean that they should be set to:


This is basically the same as Samba's but with the addition of 'Creator 

Finally, the owner is given as 'O:LA', this comes up time and time again 
on the Samba mailing list, 'sysvolreset' errors out because the owner 
has been changed to 'O:DA', presumably when a GPO is added.

Now before I waste my time creating a Patch to correct the above 
problems, has anybody got any objections to the changes i.e. changing 
the owner and adding 'Creator Owner'
