>> Hi guys,
>> How are you ?
>> We have a share named [userprofile] on our Samba-3.0.9 server where each
>> users' profile is stored.
>> Fairly often a user which is not the user that owns the profile i.e and
>> admin, needs to copy files into other users' profile folders.
>> The problem which then arises is that the user who owns the profile is
>> unable to access the new files, due to the UNIX permissions being set to
>> the person who copied the files into the directory.
>> I've looked through the smb.conf and found the "inherit permissions"
>> parameter and tried it but cannot seem to get it to work ?
>> In my smb.conf for the [userprofile] share I have the following:
>> path = /data/userprofile
>> read only = no
>> guest ok = yes
>> profile acls = yes
>> browseable = no
>> csc policy = disable
>> share modes = no
>> inherit permissions = yes
>> If the administrator connects to \\server\userprofile\user1 and writes a
>> file named "test.txt" into the directory the permissions from the
>> directory "user1" are not propagated down to the new file.
>> My permissions on the "user1" directory are set as follows:
>> drwx----- 16 user1 users 4096 2005-01-21 user1/
>> The file "test.txt" gets written with the following permissions:
>> -rw------ 16 root Domain Admins 0 2005-01-21 07:07 test.txt
>> Any ideas on how I get samba to write it so that the owner of the folder
>> propagates to new files written into the folder even if a domain admin
>> writes them there ?
>> Many thanks.
>> Kindest regards
