How to manage my Samba ACLs from NT ?
My administrator seemingly doesn't have the rights to change ACLs

And even though my administrator owns the fiels on the Samba machine it has
no rights to change ACLs or ownership.
The files are owned by "DOMAIN+Administrator" and group is "DOMAIN+Domain

I have added the user to smbpasswd I think (how can I check this ? And is
this needed ?).
Or di I have to give this user 'root' rights and how can I do that ?
