I recently upgraded to Samba 3.0.37 (not the most current but when running
2.0.x it was a big step.)


However I now have an issue I just can't seem to fix, being entirely
possible I stared at it for a week without seeing it.


The old version used to inherent the GID from the parent directory.   I can
honestly say I have no idea how I configured that to work but it was seven
years ago and the documentation I now has says that is not strictly


In reading the O Reilly and the on line documentation I see how to force a
GID, however my share in question supports way to much stuff to set one GID,
I really need it to inherit the GID from the parent.


Would someone point me in the correct direction here.
