[Samba] Change file owner

Hi all ...

I have a Linux with EXT3 file system and ACL enabled shared by samba.

The samba is integrated with M$ AD by Winbind and Domain …

When I try changing the folder owner called “Test” by Window$  
Explorer properties I have an error:

“Unable to set new owner on Test

  Access is denied”

This occurs with files too.

I am logged with user “Administrator” on Window$ and he is member of  
“Domain Admins” group.

I also created “administrator” user in passwd linux file.

The result for getpwent function is:

[root at server03 Publico]# getent passwd | grep -i adminis



I was included the first line in passwd file and second is generated  
by “Winbind” service.

The directory owner in Linux is “administrator”

drwxrwxr-x+ 2 administrator Domain Users 4096 Nov  6 14:55 Test

How I can change the file owner by Window$ Explorer?

My smb.conf is displayed to follow.



         workgroup = XXXX

         realm = XXXX.LOCAL

         netbios aliases = SRV_XXXX

         server string = Samba Server
