Set the sgid on the parent directory.  
I.E.   chmod g+s /directory  
That should force the group of all _new_ files to the group of the parent
Note that this does NOT affect permissions.  Your umask will do that.  You
can overide the umask by setting the force create mode in the smb.conf file.

Subject: [Samba] How force inherit group info on new created files ?

I have plenty shared dirctories, which are accessed through samba 2.2.4 PDC.
Mostly for each directory is created user group, which can access, modify
and create files, subdirectories. I  would like to force samba to set on new
created files and subdirecotries group info according shared directory.
For example :
\\SERV1\\Install <file://\\SERV1\\Install>  (belongs to group 'adm')
new created files now has 'users' group, but I want to be 'adm'.
Thanks for any advice,
