I am having trouble with the "inherit permissions" flag on my Samba 2.0.7
(ext2 -RedHat 7) box. When a user creates a file or directory, it is created
with their ownership and group, rather than the parent's. Is there anything
special that needs to be done to get this working..?
comment = Group Files
path = /home/shared/groups
writable = yes
guest ok = no
inherit permissions = yes
#ls -al /home/shared/groups
drwxr-xr-x 21 ian everyone 4096 Nov 21 11:32 .
drwxrwxr-x 9 ian ian 4096 Nov 21 10:34 ..
After creating a file through the samba [groups] share, this is the set of
-rwxr--r-- 1 ian ian 0 Nov 24 13:54 test.txt
And yes, other users when creating a file have their owner and group set to
Any assistance greatly appreciated!
