>> Hallo David Wilson,
>>> If the administrator(root) had to write a file (test.txt) to the user1

>>> rwx------ 16 root Domain Admins 0 2005-01-21 07:07 test.txt
>>> Unfortunately I need "user1" to own the file, just like it's parent

>>> drwx----- 16 user1 users 4096 2005-01-21 user1/
>> I thing it makes Life easyer when you change the Group Owner to "Domain

>> So every "Domain Admin" can write files on the directorys.
>> Try this (or do this on a higher Directory Level):
>> drwxrws-- 16 user1 Domain Admins 4096 2005-01-21 user1/
