Hello All.

Samba ver 3.0.25b-1.1.cc

Simple problem thats happening on two different servers.

Samba is a PDC, users are creating files via windows.

My goal is to make each and every file rwxrwx--- . 

They are being created as rwxrw----

The masks on each share is :

browseable = yes
writeable = yes
create mask = 2770
security mask = 2770
directory mask = 2770
directory security mask = 2770

I've also performed a chmod -R 2770 on the entire share dir.

if I add 

force create mode = 2770
force directory mode = 2770

to each share the new files are created as 770. 

Is this nessesary? I thought the create masks would be sufficient.

I dont want to use too many unessesary options on each share.

If anyone can assist cleaning it up that would be very helpful.
