[Samba] Error changing ACL when not the owner of the file...

Hi there folks,

I hope someone will take a minute to help me out...

We succesfully joined Samba 3.0.22 (on Debian using the .deb's from
samba.org) to our W2K3 ADS domain. We done all the steps needed to get
ACL's to work (compiled the kernel and mounted with ACl support) and all
seems to be working great.

What goes wrong is that when a user creates a file, the Admin can't
change the ACL but get's a access denied error. After searching and
reading a lot we found that we might needed to give the Admin the
SeDiskOperatorPrivilege. So set 'enable privileges = yes' in the
smb.conf and assigned the privilege. When checking (net rpc rights list
accounts -U Administrator) the privilege seems to be assigned, but we
still keep getting the access denied...

Anyone has a pointer or a tip we can work with? Thanks in advance...
