Inn the error:

Cannot read or set the permissions for file \\server\share\folder:
initializing the SD failed

Does SD stand for Security Descriptor?

I have a server that doesn't want to make new folders without giving
this error. This only applies to folders!! Files don't give this

I downgraded from 3.0.23c-1 to 3.0.21b-1 but that didn't solve it. It
did solve the
ntrol problem (acl group control)

Problem seems to be with the changed "acl group control" parameter. When
I try to change rights of a file from within Windows I get an access
denied (I'm not the owner of the file but I am a member of a group who
has rwx rights). 

How can I regain this functionality? "dos filemode = yes" is already
set. I really need a solution, our customers are getting pretty grumpy.
