as the subject says, I've problems reading the permissions of a file/folder beeing located on my Samba server with the Windows-Explorer.
To solve the problem, I've read through log.smbd and found that introducion error: "error packet at smbd/nttrans.c(86) cmd=160 (SMBnttrans) NT_STATUS_BUFFER_TOO_SMALL" followed by various NT_STATUS errors. While grepping the archive for that error, I found a message in wich the author wrote this would happen frequently because Windows often tries to read/creat files that do no really exist. That's fine with me, but actually there is a real error causing the problem I describe: When I open the properties of any file or folder and swith to the security task, Windows shows me the users owning it, but not the permissions (exactly, it tells me that nobody of these has any permission). When I try to set any, nothing happens (it returns to none) and I find new NT_STATUS errors in the log.
Can someone help me to fix that issue? It would be great, because I want to use roaming profiles. I think that "NT_STATUS_BUFFER" causes the problem.
