Is there a way to configure samba such that Windows applications are not allowed to change file permissions for existing files in the share.
I just want to be able to read and modify the files from Windows without affecting the file permissions inadvertently. I do not care about any Windows side file attributes such as ACL.
I tried several things including parameters such as 'map archive = no', 'security mask = xxx' etc. Nothing seem to result in what exactly I want. This is surprising considering that my requirement is very simple.
Is this possible in samba.
