Hi List,

I am working with ACLs and the EXT3 Filesystem and I have the same problem how already discussed in several NGs.

If I move a file from one directory into another, the file do not change the persmissons. So the users who should be authorize to access the file, do not have these permissons. This is a great problem in my data structure because we have to exchange a lot of files.

I know that this is the way the filesystems works. But I think there are more people who wants to work in the discribed way. So is there a filesystem which have another way to handle the scrolling of files and directories?

Is there really no chance to inherit the permissions from the parent-directory?
Or do anybody know a workaround to mange my problem? How do other administrators handle this?

for info:
I am working with Samba 3.0.13 under SuSE 9.3
The service of the smb.conf for tests:
        comment = Daten
        path = /data
        writeable = yes
        create mask = 0770
        directory mask = 0770
        valid users = @samba
Test with inherit permissions and inherit ACL was not successful.

Thanks for your help
