Dear Readers:

I'm using Samba 2.2.8a on a Solaris 9 machine. Samba has been compiled with
ACL-Support and everything works fine, but there is one feature that I dont

A file that is created in a directory with default ACLs for the owner, group
and others-permissions will inherit these permissions and the umask will
be ignored.

  cd /var/tmp
  mkdir dir
  setfacl -s u::rwx,g::rwx,o:---,d:u::rwx,d:g::rwx,d:o:rwx dir
  umask 022
  touch dir/testfile
  ls -l dir/testfile
  -rw-rw-rw-   1 root     other          0 Aug  6 16:59 dir/testfile

Samba will NOT ignore the  create mask  parameter in this situation. Is this a
bug or a feature?

Any suggestions on how to configure samba, so that files in some directories
of a share will get 666-rights while others (in the same share ) will get
