[Samba] acl

I have the same problem.  I did everything that bluelightning suggests
. Using the secuity tab in windows if I change the attributes on
people that are already there, namely root, everyone, or myself it
works.  If I try to add a new user it fails saying:

Unable to save permissions on file.
Access is denied.

I know acls work. I can use setfacl -m u:username:rw <file> and it
adds it just fine in a shell prompt.  

Anyone have any ideas or know what log file I should look through.

I'd check out Paul's unofficial howto at


Hope this helps.
