Hi folks,

I installed Samba 3.0.9 on one of my Solaris 8 Boxes. The installation 
(configure with: --with-pam --with-acl-support --with-winbind) and the 
configuration (creating a share, ...) went fine so far. I configured my Samba-
Server to fetch all user- and group-information from my DC. Using wbinfo (-u|-
g) to check wheter winbindd is running, or not works fine. I get a complete 
list of all user (groups). But if I try to change the permission of a file or 
directory from within my Windows client, i get the following error in my 

[2004/12/21 13:27:30, 3] smbd/posix_acls.c:convert_canon_ace_to_posix_perms
  convert_canon_ace_to_posix_perms: Too many ACE entries for file DV/file.txt 
to convert to posix perms.

Any hints on how to fix this problem?



BTW: here is my smb.conf and the output from smbd -b and uname -a

        workgroup = MYWINDOWSDOMAIN
        netbios name = MYSAMBASERVER
        server string = My Samba Server
        security = DOMAIN
        auth methods = winbind
        password server = ip.of.my.PDC
        username level = 2
        log level = 3
        name resolve order = wins bcast hosts
        preferred master = No
        local master = No
        domain master = No
        wins server = ip.of.my.WINS
        idmap uid = 10000-20000
        idmap gid = 10000-20000
