If you are using Samba version 3.0.20 or later, you can set the "inherit
owner = yes" on the share.

I have a PDC that serves 800 users all of whom have their own home
directory. From time to time, members of the Domain Admins group scan
pages for the users and save them into the users home directories but
the permissions for the file are created with the admin as owner. 

Is there any way of forcing ownership of a file or directory to the
owner of the home folder rather than the admin who created the file.
