Hi Tonni

LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
LABEL=/export/1         /export/1               ext3    defaults        1 2
LABEL=/export/2         /export/2               ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/sda3               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              udf,iso9660
noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0

That’s my fstab

Student accounts are on /export/1
Staff on /export/2

Many thanks

Sounds as though you don't have POSIX ACLs enabled on the Samba share mount.

The OS has ACL support as standard, but it's not enabled by default.
What does /etc/fstab look like for the share mount?
