I am using Samba as a PDC and am wanting to be able to change the group
ownership of a file from windows. Can or has this been done? I am able
to change the permissons on a file from windows (rwx- read
write,read&execute), but when I try and change the group (removing the
current group then clicking on add to get the new group), I get the
message "access denied".
Here is my smb.conf file... I have a share named test, with the group
testwww, which I am
a member of. I have a txt file I want to change the group from "testwww"
to "test" from windows by right-clicking on the txt file, properities,
security settings. When I do so,
I get a windows error message "access denied".
I would appreciate any suggestions.
