OK, I found my problem and i am a little ashamed it took me this long to
figure it out but here goes.
The error i was getting when trying to adjust the ACL was "Changes could not
be saved, access is denied"
using Winbind, i had done the following:
#chgrp "MRPARTYK/Domain Users" /ftproot
which left the owner as "root". I have an entry in the /etc/samba/smb.conf
file the equivalates root to administrator, so i thought that having the
owner as root was acceptable, but i am guessing that the smbusers file only
maps in one direction, from Unix ->Windows and not Windows -> Unix, because
the solution was:
#chown "MRPARTYKA/Administrator" /ftprooot
Once i did this, i was able to change the ACL, all i wanted. Hope this saves
someone some effort down the line.
Thanks for the help i got from members of this list!
