OK, I have RTFM.  All the I could find.

I cannot seem to set permissions via WINXP Pro explorer. No matter what I do all I get is access denied - even if I own the file.
Samba log reveals:

Samba is compiled with acl and ldap support
smbd -b

have net groupmap add ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=dpdev  which is our IT group.

Logged as myself
uid=272(larry) gid=544(Administrators) groups=0(root),100(users),101(dpdev),108(
vsifax),109(www),200(informix),512(Domain Admins),544(Administrators),1000(dp)

I can modify acls using setfacl but not through samba.

Even if I log in to windows as Administrator I get the same error.

What does it take to be a Samba Domain Admin  ver 3.0.15pre2
