[Samba] "create mask = 0660" and "map archive = yes" ?

define your create mask as 0760.  Create mask does not give or add
permissions to files, it takes them away.  Ergo, by removing the execute
bit from the create mask, Samba always removes the execute bit.  Maybe
what you wanted is "force create mode"?.  Force Create mode 0660 would
ensure that user and group always get read/write permission to the file.

That steal the goose from off the common,
But let the greater villain loose
That steals the common from the goose.

hi all

if i define a create mask of 0660 in global, i can't seem to set the archive
bit .
isn't the archive bit set by setting the execute bit for the users perm ?
how do I get around that ?
