Hi John,

The kernel has acl support and the share partition is mounted with acls
support. The problem occurs on directories, when you set permissions, the
permissions will change but windows properties show all the security boxes
unticked as if no user has any permissions on it. I can see the permissions
being set by monitoring the host file system, as I say this functions
correctly for files and the tick boxes in windows show the appropriate
settings which is useful, but the same does not occur in setting directory

My nssswitch.conf also uses winbind.

Best Regards,
