[Samba] Inherit permissions question (Please help)

Hi Craig,

Thanks for your reply.
My suggestions for using a preexec script is a sort of "last resort" option. 
I could rather configure a job in cron that checks permissions.
Ideally I need the "inherit permissions" option but with the ability to also 
include user & group ownership. To get this done samba would require root 
privileges  to change the ownership of files to that of the parent folder - 
which probably wouldn't be a good idea ?

Thanks for your help so far.
Any assistance/input would be greatly appreciated.

Kindest regards
David Wilson
