I can't seem to verify whether or my first attempt at sending this 
message was successful, so I'm reposting it, using a different method. I 
apologize if anyone has seen it already.

I have a Samba server, joined to my Windows Active Directory domain, and 
I'm having a problem setting ACLs on a share from Windows. On Windows, I 
get the error message "Unable to save permission changes on <folder>. The 
parameter is incorrect." and when I look in my Samba log, I see the 
message "ACL is invalid for set (Invalid argument)".

"getent passwd" and "getent group" return both local and AD users and 
groups, respectively.

Here are the relevant lines from my smb.conf:

        workgroup = <My domain>
        server string = Samba Server Version %v
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        log level = 3 winbind:10 acls:10
        security = ads
        realm = <My domain>.LOCAL
        encrypt passwords = yes
        idmap uid = 2000-10000
        idmap gid = 2000-10000
        winbind enum groups = yes
        winbind enum users = yes
        wins server =
        load printers = no
        cups options = raw
        comment = Home Directories
        browseable = no
        writable = yes
        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba
        browseable = no
        guest ok = no
        writable = no
        printable = yes
        comment = Test share for PaperPort images
        path = /u1/images
        admin users = <My domain>\<user1> <My domain>\<me>
        public = yes
        writable = yes
        browseable = yes

I'm sure I'm missing something minor, but I can't figure out what it is. 
Anyone have any ideas?
