[Samba] ACL from win2k doesn't work

Are you logged into your workstation as a Administrator?  Is the local
Administrator password on your workstation same as on the server?  Even if
this is the case, the samba may still complain that you initially connected
as one user ("PC\Administrator") and now want to connect as another use

You could try the following:
	From the command prompt on the PC type  "net use" to see how you are
currently connect to the server.
	Type "net use /delete ..." to delete existing connection
	Type "net use \\server /user: server\administrator" to reconnect
with the correct credentials.

Not sure if the syntax is correct or if it will work anyway.

Otherwise I think your two options are 
	1. to use unix command line to set permissions (e.g. setfacl if you
want more than one user or group assigned)
	2. join your PC to the domain.

Subject: [Samba] ACL from win2k doesn't work

  I'm trying to setup a simple standalone Samba server in a win2k network
without domain.

I've followed some basic howto on the net, users can see shares and can
save, modify and delete files and folders.

My big problem is the security tab: i can't add any user because the screen
where i can see users list ask me for a password.

With an admin user and password (the same that i use to log into share) it
tells something like "credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of

If I don't insert user and password it tells "access denied".

Also I can't modify existing acl.

Logs are with debug level = 3 but no error is present.
